RMEF Team Elk, theRocky Mountain Elk Foundation’s TV show, is a finalist for the upcoming 15th Annual Golden Moose Awards (GMA). The program is one of 12 finalists in the running for “Best Conservation, Education & Instruction.”
“We are not in the conservation business to win awards, but at the same time it’s nice when peers recognize the hard work our folks dedicate to this production,” said Steve Decker, RMEF vice president of Marketing. “Winning or losing on awards night won’t change the fact that we have a very dedicated and talented marketing and production team that excels in what they do. It’s great that others have taken some notice of those efforts.”
