RMEF grants awarded to seven New Mexico counties

The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation recently awarded a total of $77,500 in grants to seven New Mexico counties. Funded by local membership drives and banquets within the state, the grants will support wildlife habitat improvement projects in Catron, Lincoln, Mora, Otero, Sandoval, Socorro and Rio Arriba counties.
Projects associated with the grants include prescribed burning, restoration of wet meadows and riparian areas, mechanical forest thinning to promote new growth and other projects. 
Since 1985, RMEF and its partners have completed 270 conservation and hunting heritage outreach projects in New Mexico. For more information on these and other projects, visit http://www.rmef.org
