Take part in a Rocky Mountain tradition: listening for the bugling of the bull Elk (Wapiti) on an autumn evening.Join a ranger at Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument to learn about listen to the wild Wapiti.

Please see dates and times below:


Saturday 20th, Sunday 21st (5:00PM –7:30PM)

Friday 26th, Saturday 27th, Sunday 28th (5:00 PM to 7:30 PM)


Friday October 3rd, Sunday October 5th (4:45 PM to 7:15 PM)

These programs will include a brief presentation about these magnificent animals, followed by an off trail hike of up to 2 miles during which we will look and listen for the elk in the wild.Normal entrance fees to Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument will apply ($3 per adult, 16 and older). Annual passes to the Fossil Beds are available for $15 (good for the cardholder and 3 other adults).

Large numbers of people tend to make the elk wary and elusive, so the number of participants will be limited.Advance registration is required. In the past these programs have filled up quickly, so call early for reservations.Tables and grills are available near the visitor center for picnics before the program.
