South Dakota Mammoth Site in Hot Springs

I visited this site a few years ago....very interesting. A good place for a family.

One of the things to do is an educational simulated excavation for "Junior Paleontologists" ages 4-13 is held 7 days a week at the Mammoth Site from June 1st through August 15th. The daily session begins at 2:00 PM and lasts 1 to 1 1/2 hours. During the months of June and July, an extra morning session is held at 10:00 AM.

This is a popular program.... advanced pre-paid registration is required to guarantee a dig date; Space is limited to 16 diggers for each session. .
Paleontological excavation techniques are taught, including identification of replica mammoth and giant short-faced bear fossils. Replicas are buried in a special area next to the actual sinkhole. Photos and filming are encouraged. Participants bring home a fossil identification booklet and a Jr. Paleontologist completion certificate suitable for framing.
