LOGAN, W.Va. (AP) – Chief Logan State Park is hosting 20 guided tours to the area where more than 90 elk roam freely in West Virginia.
The elk are at the nearby Tomlin Wildlife Management Area and were imported from Kentucky and Arizona. They’re part of a Division of Natural Resources effort to restore the species to the state.
The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports the four-hour tours are scheduled to begin Saturday and cost $30 for adults, which includes a meal, transportation, an educational program and a souvenir.
Guests aren’t guaranteed to see elk. But the tours are scheduled for dawn and dusk, when elk are most active.
More information is available online.
