Elk Tour is Canceled This Fall

West Virginia officials have decided to cancel elk tours this year due to concerns about the coronavirus pandemic. Logan State Park naturalist Lauren Cole, who leads the tours, told the Gazette-Mail that there would be too many risks involved if the tours were allowed.
Division of Natural Resources officials have allowed up to 24 public tours each year since 2018, and they are usually timed between early September and mid-October to coincide with mating season. Cole said she expects resume leading them again as long as there’s no concern about the virus.
