Buttonwillow Tule Elk
Charcoal on Vintage CA Map containing Buttonwillow 20 x26 in.
My research of animals that live only in CA introduced me to the Tule Elk. The Tule Elk State Natural Reserve is off Hwy I-5 west of Bakersfield. If not for the reserve, these majestic elk would be extinct.
Map #43 contains “adopted State Hwy 5” running through the tail of the Tule Elk. I-5 was completed in 1957, which tell us that this map series was printed before that time.
