RMEF Endowment Makes $7.7 Million Difference for Elk Country (So Far)

Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation

MISSOULA, Mont.—The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is celebrating the fifth anniversary of its Torstenson Family Endowment (TFE) and the wide-ranging impact it continues to leave on elk country from coast to coast.

“Since its establishment five years ago, the TFE has allowed us to accelerate timely impactful on-the-ground conservation work benefitting elk and elk country in a manner we could not do previously,” said Blake Henning, RMEF chief conservation officer.

With the blessing of the Torstenson family, RMEF sold the 93,000-acre Torstenson Wildlife Center, previously known as the Double-H Ranch, gifted to RMEF in 2002 by Bob Torstenson. The 2012 transaction established the $30 million TFE, believed to be one of the largest endowments ever gifted to a hunter-based, wildlife conservation organization.

RMEF uses earnings, interest and appreciation generated from the endowment to solely further its core mission programs.

Over the last five years, the now $38 million endowment provided a total of more than $7.7 million dollars across 37 states and one Canadian province, including:

  • nearly $4.1 million across 13 states that opened or improved public access to 268,000 acres of public land and permanently protected 45,000 acres
  • $1.8 million for hunting heritage programs reaching more than 353,000 youth and adults across 31 states and one Canadian province
  • $883,000 for various wildlife management and research projects
  • $789,000 for habitat enhancement work benefitting 72,200 acres across 19 states home to wild elk
  • 236,000 for elk restoration work in Virginia and Wisconsin

“The Torstenson Family Endowment stands as a perpetual tribute to the late Bob Torstenson. His love of elk, wild places and his desire to spread our traditional hunting lifestyle to the generations that follow will continue to be manifested for years to come,” added Henning.

About the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation:

Founded over 30 years ago, fueled by hunters and a membership of more than 227,000 strong, RMEF has conserved more than 7.3 million acres for elk and other wildlife. RMEF also works to open and improve public access, fund and advocate for science-based resource management, and ensure the future of America’s hunting heritage.

Elk Habitat Protected, Hunting Access Improved in Colorado

 

Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation

MISSOULA, Mont.—Thanks to a conservation-minded landowner and a key state funding program, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation joined Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) to permanently protect 2,677 acres of vital elk habitat in northwest Colorado.

“We are grateful to Rick Tingle, a RMEF life member, for placing a conservation easement on his Louisiana Purchase Ranch,” said Blake Henning, RMEF chief conservation officer. “Additionally, this project highlights the critical need for the Colorado Wildlife Habitat Program (CWHP) and its Habitat Stamp which supplied important funding to help push things through to the finish line.”

“With a fast-growing human population, it is more important than ever before to ensure the state’s wildlife has the habitat it needs to survive in perpetuity,” said Bill de Vergie, CPW area wildlife manager. “Thanks to funds provided by Great Outdoors Colorado and CPW’s Habitat Stamp Program, a very valuable stretch of land is now protected through the CWHP. Some limited public hunting access will also be provided so the benefits of this easement will pay dividends well into the future.”

CWHP provides a means for CPW to work with private landowners, local governments, and conservation organizations to protect important fish and wildlife habitat and provide places for people to enjoy opportunities to hunt and fish.

Since the ranch is bordered on three sides by State Land Board and Bureau of Land Management land in a part of the state home to Colorado’s largest elk herds, it provides connectivity for elk and mule deer migration. Thousands of elk pass through the area during the spring and fall. The property also provides summer and winter range for both species and other wildlife.

“This truly is a special place,” said David Allen, RMEF president and CEO, who has visited the location. “We are grateful to the Tingle family for recognizing and helping us protect the wildlife values of this land.”

Access is improved to surrounding public lands because the landowner will provide perpetual unlimited permission to public hunters for a 25-day period each year with drive-through access. In addition, he signed off on a 10-year CPW agreement to provide access for six elk and/or deer hunters on lands off County Road 23 during a three-day window during Colorado’s third rifle season.

Since 1987, RMEF and its partners completed 726 conservation and hunting heritage outreach projects in Colorado with a combined value of more than $165.2 million. These projects protected or enhanced 447,910 acres of habitat and opened or improved public access to 107,992 acres.
