Sep. 03, 2014 @ 09:14 AM

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Tours to view elk are being held at two eastern Kentucky parks this fall and winter.

Elk were gone from Kentucky for 150 years but were returned in 1997. Now there are around 10,000 of the animals.

The viewing tours are being held at Jenny Wiley State Resort Park at Prestonsburg and Buckhorn Lake State Resort Park at Buckhorn.

Tour dates run from Sept. 20 to March 7 at Jenny Wiley and Sept. 20 to March 29 at Buckhorn Lake. Jenny Wiley is also offering an overnight ATV tour this Saturday and an overnight camping tour on Sept. 13.
Costs vary depending on the tour and the park.

For more information or to register, call 800-325-0142 for Jenny Wiley tours or 800-325-0058 for Buckhorn Lake.
