Rocky Mountain Nature Association Schedules Elk Expeditions With New Bus

By: Charlotte Boney (Olson Fellow)

The Rocky Mountain Nature Association (RMNA) is pleased to announce the purchase of a 14-passenger bus for its Rocky Mountain Field Seminars program. The bus was acquired through the generous contributions of friends and donors of RMNA.

To kick off this new venture, the Field Seminars program is hosting Elk Expeditions in Rocky Mountain National Park Friday and Saturday evenings, September 16-October 22, from 5:30 p.m. – dusk (7:30 p.m.). These two hour excursions will be led by experienced naturalists who will explain elk ecology and behavior and be available to answer participant questions. Each session will depart from the Field Seminars Center at 1895 Fall River Rd.

This is the first of a series of Bus Adventures the Field Seminars program will be offering. The vehicle will be used in conjunction with regularly scheduled seminars and other RMNA activities throughout the year.

Aaron Petrie of Unink Printworks generously contributed his abilities to create the design on the vehicle which now sports colorful decals of moose, bighorn sheep and local flora and fauna, as well as information about RMNA on its sides and back. The bus will enable Field Seminars participants to travel to various destinations throughout the park, as a group, and in comfort.

The Rocky Mountain Nature Association is the official nonprofit partner of Rocky Mountain National Park and other public lands. To register for the Elk Expeditions by Bus, or for more information on the Field Seminars program, call the Rocky Mountain Field Seminars Center at 970-586-0108, or visit the website at
