(Rapid City, SD) — A foundation is opening up private land it has acquired for public use. The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation has obtained tracts controlled by two landowners within the boundaries of the Black Hills National Forest. The nearly 240 acres can be used by the public for hunting and recreational activities. RMEF’s president and CEO says acquiring the land was important because any development would displace wildlife in the area. The foundation’s focus is to conserve landscapes and protect habitats.
