PINETOP, Ariz — The Arizona Game and Fish Department is again partnering with the Arizona Elk Society White Mountain Chapter (AES) to offer an elk natural history and viewing workshop on Saturday, Oct. 5, 2019 at Sipe White Mountain Wildlife Area near Eagar. Workshop presentations will begin at 11 a.m. After the presentations, an early dinner will be served by the AES. Maps will be provided to nearby areas with likely elk viewing opportunities. Sipe Wildlife Area has several hiking trails where you might see elk or other wildlife. Late September to early October is the best time of year to view elk because it is breeding season. The bulls will bugle as they battle to gather cow elk into harems and it is truly an awesome time of year to experience this unique wildlife event. The workshop will be limited to 150 participants. A $20/person dinner ticket is required for each reservation. The dinner is a fundraiser for the AES, whose mission is to enhance the quality of wildlife habitat as well as teaching our next generation the importance of being responsible stewards of our national heritage our great outdoors. Dinner will include a hamburger, side and dessert. Children must be 12 years old to participate.

Arizona Elk Society’s Heroes Rising Outdoors® program helps disabled Arizona veterans “heal through hunting” while using big game tags donated by generous sportsmen and women. Hunts are staffed by guides/outfitters and volunteers who donate their time and knowledge of Arizona’s outdoors. David Zibbon had the help of High Point Outfitters from Flagstaff to take this beautiful bull elk! Congrats to all involved, and a heartfelt “thank you” to David for his service to our great nation!

Arizona Elk Society Selected for 2017 National Rise To The Future Partnership Award

April 26, 2018

The Arizona Elk Society is proud to be recognized by the United States Forest Service in Washington, D.C. as the winner of this year’s Partnership Award for its cooperation with the Coconino National Forest in the Southwestern Region. Last year, the Arizona Elk Society mobilized 150 volunteers in the first phase of a high elevation meadow restoration project to stabilize streambanks and reduce erosion; maintain the meadow over time; and benefit a number of threatened and endangered wildlife species, elk, and downstream aquatic life. A longstanding partner of the Coconino National Forest, the Arizona Elk Society has played a major role in assisting the national forest with stream, wetland, and riparian restoration projects. The Arizona Elk Society has engaged numerous other partners to contribute more than 10,000 volunteer hours over the past decade.

In October of 2017 Steve Clark, Executive Director of AES did a presentation at the site of the Long Valley project to local Arizona Forest service personnel and USFS representatives from Washington.

Stephen Clark will be in Washington D.C. on June 12th to do a presentation on the project and receive the award at the awards ceremony at the US Department of Agriculture.
