Tuesday, Nov. 17; Elk Check Station #FromtheField Webinar, noon

Join Game Commission biologists “From the Field” as they highlight the scientific research that happens each year at the Elk Check Station in Northcentral Pennsylvania. Learn why species management and biological research is important to understanding Pennsylvania’s largest mammal and ensuring the health of their population. We hope to keep the session within your lunch hour; it should last about 30 minutes. From the Field webinars are part of our virtual learning initiative – Wildlife on Wi-Fi . FREE. Register online. For more information contact:

WARNING: This webinar will contain graphic content. Viewer discretion is advised. While the check station provides important information to enhance elk management, it may be difficult for some viewers to watch. The viewer is likely to see all aspects of the check station including but not limited to harvested (deceased) elk and biological (blood and tissue) samples taken.
