Paleoindian-Age Lamb Spring Site Celebrates New Interpretive Display
The Lamb Spring Archaeological Preserve (LSAP) is an internationally significant archaeological and paleontological site containing bone beds of extinct Ice Age animals and artifacts from later human occupation, including the remains of over 30 Columbian Mammoths as well as camels, horses, sloths, llamas, and wolves. In 2013 LSAP began a vigorous effort to highlight the site’s potential as an educational center for Douglas County, the Denver metropolitan area, and the Colorado Front Range. The cornerstone of the preserve is a newly installed on-site exhibit featuring the cast of a juvenile mammoth skull and interpretive signs describing the history of excavations and the significance of the site. The signs and display enhance the free twice-monthly public tours of the site that run spring through fall (http://lambspring.org/).
