Columbian Mammoth bones were discovered in Waco, Texas in 1978. Over the years following the discovery, many of the bones were excavated and put into storage at Baylor University. Meanwhile, the only protection for the remaining uncollected bones was a large tent. In 2009, a building was constructed over the site to preserve the remaining bones and allow visitors the opportunity to view them. The site is expected to be designated a National Monument and become part of the National Parks system.

On August 29, 2009 Barbara Benty, Tom Tucker, and I were hired by the city of Waco, TX to assist Anita Benedict (Baylor University Museum collections manager) with the repair and cleaning of the fossil Columbian mammoth and camel bones.
