Help us name Grandfather Mountain’s three new elk! Submit names online for the elk from Nov. 17 to Dec. 4.
The bachelor herd of three male elk will arrive at Grandfather in early December and will be in the newly constructed elk habitat, formerly the white-tail deer habitat. The habitat staff will select the three winning names — entries will not be mixed and matched, e.g. a name from one contestant and two from another contestant, etc. — and the winner will receive a pass for four to Grandfather Mountain, as well as a complimentary Behind the Scenes Tour for their group.
Grandfather Mountain encourages contestants to submit names related in context, e.g. famous trios (excluding “The Three Stooges” and anything political)
The $3 entry donation ($1 per submitted name) will directly benefit the elk in their new home, helping to supply food, veterinary care and enrichments. While the Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation appreciates all contributions, submitting a name more than once will not increase the chances of having it selected as a winner by the habitat staff.
