Welcome to the home of the Keystone Elk Country Alliance (KECA)


KECA is a Pennsylvania based 501(c) non-profit wildlife conservation organization. We operate and manages the Elk Country Visitor Center and the surrounding properties in Benezette, Pennsylvania to benefit the future of Elk Country, and the enjoyment of hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. Our guests will enjoy conservation education programs provided by KECA, our 4D story theater, our new ECCO Building (Elk Country Campus Outdoors Building) which is available for programs and events, the interactive displays and diorama in the heart of the Visitor Center as well as the hundreds of wild elk that call the property surrounding the Visitor Center home. We welcome you to come and experience Elk Country for yourself. KECA is membership based, but volunteer driven, with volunteers helping us complete our mission on a daily basis.

KECA’s resources have been focused on improving hundreds of acres on the property surrounding the Elk Country Visitor Center along with many projects on both public and private land. Our commitment is to Elk Country first. One way that commitment is fulfilled is through our amazing conservation education programs. Take part in our programs here at the Elk Country Visitor Center, or through our web-based distance learning program. For more information on any of our programs, contact us today.
