A Biological Reconnaissance : National Elk Refuge : Summer - 1958

Metadata Updated: October 9, 2019

Efficient refuge management demands a readily accessible knowledge of local facts upon which to base an action program.

The purpose of the present detail is a continuation of the work started during the summer of 1957. The recent moves for inter-agency action concerning the Jackson Hole elk herd emphasize the need tor the compilation of as much material as possible concerning that part or herd management that applies to the National Elk Refuge. The purpose of this compilation is to assemble as many facts as possible in an accessible form for efficient administrative use.

Field work was conducted on a number of projects. Noxious weeds were mapped in cooperation with the Soil Conservation Service. Summering elk were located and a count was made. A mammal list was made that is being submitted separately for consideration as one of the new "300" refuge leaflet series. Observations were made on the nesting trumpeter swans.

As indicated by the index, other data were secured and assembled for the record. Thirty-three days were spent on or in the vicinity of the refuge between June 4 and July 6.
