You now have the opportunity to experience a magnificent Elk herd in the Flint Hills of Kansas at Acorns Wild amidst a backdrop reminiscent of when they roamed the Tallgrass Prairie in the mid-1850s. Originally, Native Americans valued Wapiti (elk) for their beauty, meat, hides, bones and antlers. The herd at Acorns Wild currently includes 54 bulls, cows and calves of various ages, all living and contributing to our lives in similar ways as was almost 200 years ago. They play, run, eat, breed (September) and have babies (June and July). The herd grows and thrives among native grasses and mature trees to eat, roam and live in, while also providing sustenance, as it was before. Many elk curiously approach the fence to see if the 2-legged creature on the other side offers a handful of tall grasses from behind the fence (the grass is always greener).
