Coyote Canyon Mammoth Dig volunteers wanted

Tri-City HeraldApril 18, 2014 

A science education organization is looking for volunteers to help at an archaeological dig south of Kennewick this summer.

Volunteers at the Coyote Canyon Mammoth Dig, which was uncovered several years ago, help recover the 17,000-year-old Columbian mammoth skeleton discovered there but also uncover other signs of life from that era. The site is maintained by the Mid-Columbia Basin Old Nature Education Sciences Research Center Foundation.

Work crews are at the site the second and third weekends of each month from April to October. Interested volunteers should call 509-627-1654 or 509-438-9417 to sign up for today's dig and future work days.

Students interested in the program can sign up with the foundation's internship program at
