The popular winter activities at the National Elk Refuge, including the sleigh rides through the wintering herd, have begun now beginning at 9:00 am daily from the Jackson Hole and Greater Yellowstone Visitor Center. Other activities include wildlife viewing excursions along the Refuge Road where elk, bighorn sheep, waterfowl, and other animals five days per week. Participants will accompany a naturalist to learn more about Refuge history and wildlife management other than in a traditional visitor center setting. The wildlife viewing excursions are offered free of charge through the generous support of the Grand Teton Association. Refuge naturalists will also provide presentations at times about animals making their homes on the refuge or spotlighting individual species of wildlife – usually during the mid-morning hours.
