AES Northern Arizona Peaks Chapter

Hundreds of thousands of acres has been restored and hundreds of water catchments have been rebuilt and maintained.

Arizona Elk Society started a new program "Hunts for Heroes" to help disabled veterans here in Arizona heal through hunting. Our first hunt is in the books. Kevin Widner was our first hunter and harvested a great antelope in Northern AZ. Program Director Dave Holbrook set up the hunt with our great friends at High Point Outfitters from Flagstaff. John from HPO and his guides did a great job.

Thank You to all that had a hand in this hunt and
Thank You to Kevin for his service to the United States.


The Arizona Elk Society, in 2013, worked with the USFS to certify 14 Wildland Chain Saw operators, Sawyers, to work with AZGFD and the USFS to restore wildlife habitat throughout Elk range in Arizona. Each year since we have had some new volunteers get certified, as we grow so does the work that we can be doing for elk and wildlife. We restore grasslands, riparian meadows, and much more by removing invading pine and juniper trees.
