PA Great Outdoors Elk Expo Set for Aug. 17-18

BROOKVILLE – After a five-year wait, the Pennsylvania Great Outdoors Elk Expo will return again this Aug. 17-18 at the Elk Country Visitor Center in Benezette.

The Pennsylvania Great Outdoors Visitors Bureau and the Keystone Elk Country Alliance have partnered to bring the Elk Expo to life again. This year is anticipated to be bigger and better than ever before.

Historically, the expo has drawn crowds from across the state and around the country. Visitors enjoy the numerous nationally recognized speakers and in-depth educational seminars as well as presentations from local experts during the expo.

Vendors will be on-site offering everything from outdoor gear to wildlife photography. There will also be local food vendors and live music to enjoy.

For the kids, there will be lots of fun activities and educational opportunities, presented by the Keystone Elk Country Alliance.

The Elk Country Visitor Center in Benezette opened their doors in September of 2010. They have become a “shining example” of a public and private partnership, between the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the Keystone Elk Country Alliance, welcoming 200,000 visitors a year to their eco-friendly facility.

KECA is committed to conserving the state’s majestic elk habitat and providing educational programs accredited by the state’s Department of Education. 

On the grounds of the Elk Country Visitor Center, there are nature trails and viewing areas that perfect for safely viewing the elk herd, which frequents the property.
