Central Pennsylvania is home to one of the largest elk herds east of the Mississippi River. 

It is here that the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation joined forces with the Pennsylvania Game Commission and a generous landowner to conserve 776 acres of wildlife habitat and place that property in the public’s hands. 

The project extends the western unit of State Game Lands 100 to the North along the West Branch of the Susquehanna River. by doing so, it expands that unit to more than 5,200 acres in size and improves access to it…while expanding the overall size of the two State Game Lands 100 units to more that 21,000 acres.

The acreage features rolling hills, meadows, woodlands and key riparian habitat that, in addition to elk. is also home to deer, black bear , turkey, grouse and other bird and animal life. 

Opening and improving public access lies at the heart of RMEF’s conservation mission.
