Kids can now get hands on experience while learning about the ice age, thanks in part to a new Mammoth Site exhibit. The site will offer summer classes at the new Education Program Building in Hot Springs.
Supervisors say the new facility will house 5 classes a day, 2 digs for children and even an adult dig. Diggers will be able to search for life–size replica bones, including a toe, tusk and bear skull.
“They get a really cool experience, not only do they get to dig up the replica bones, they’ll also get experience in mapping and making plaster jackets,” said Ashley Ledger of the Mammoth Site. “They get to get a little dirty and it’s gonna be a blast.”
Classes at the new building begin June 1. It costs $10 for kids and $20 for adults, plus admission fees.
