The Arizona Game and Fish Department and Mormon Lake Lodge invites the public to experience the sound of a bull elk bugling, and see a cow elk keeping a watchful eye on her calf.

The agency is offering an elk viewing workshop on Saturday, Aug. 18. The workshop includes a presentation and a field trip to watch elk in their natural habitat near Mormon Lake.

Mormon Lake is one of only two natural lakes in Arizona. During the early fall, hundreds of elk can be observed at the site and along Lake Mary Road.

"This workshop is a great way for people to enjoy the state's wildlife treasures and the important habitats they live in," Arizona Game and Fish Department Public Information Officer Shelly Shepherd said. "The department provides several wildlife watching events throughout the state year round."

The workshop will include presentations starting at 4 and 5 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 18.

Participants will attend a presentation, located in the Kachina Room at Mormon Lake Lodge, and also go on a field trip. The field trip location will be determined that day based on where the elk are observed. Spotting scopes will be provided, but participants are encouraged to bring binoculars, water and snacks, and to wear appropriate clothing.

Anyone interested in registering for the workshop will need to contact the Flagstaff Game and Fish Office at 928-774-5045 before 3 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 17.

Mormon Lake Lodge is located about 25 miles south of Flagstaff.
