You Can Tour the Mammoth Dig Just South of Kennewick!
It's amazing to think that just over 17,000 years ago Mammoths were roaming our region -- not millions of years ago, simply thousands.
The dig was discovered when a man wanted some fill dirt and found giant bones in it. So for the past decade (when it's not freezing) the workers slowly -- and I do mean slowly -- remove dirt methodically looking to unearth every piece of this mammoth there is.
It's an all-volunteer effort, and the public is welcome to tour! Hey teachers, this would be a perfect field trip!
