Waco Mammoth National Monument

About 68,000 years ago, a herd of at least 24 Columbian mammoths died in a flash flood events at what is now a paleontological site and official National Monument in Waco. Tours are available so visitors can view fossils of female mammoths, a bull mammoth, and the site of the largest known discovery of a mammoth nursery herd.  The site became part of the National Park System as a National Monument in July 2015.
