A special program at the Jackson Hole and Greater Yellowstone Visitor Center on Monday will serve as the kickoff event for the National Elk Refuge’s centennial year. While the primary celebration will be in August when Congress appropriated the money to purchase land for the refuge, Refuge Spokesperson Lori Iverson says activities are planned from now until then to help generate excitement for the milestone. Monday’s free activities, she says are designed with the entire family in mind. Iverson says plans are in the making to mark the actual anniversary date, August 10th. Monday’s activities begin at 10:00 am. A complete listing of the activities is listed on the National Elk Refuge website.
