The Mammoth Site of Hot Springs conducted Cooperative Learning Venture in the Denver area on April 10 & 11. Karen & Joe Muller and Kristi and Cody Harris transported replicas and educational materials for a classroom experience for 24 Sand Creek First Graders on Friday Afternoon. They were joined by Colorado Mammoth staff, Wooly, the Colorado Mammoth mascot and Colorado Mammoth forward, Andrew Potter. For those not familiar, the Colorado Mammoth has the second largest season ticket base in Denver, behind only the Denver Broncos. The team plays its home games at PepsiCenter and is one of the best family-focused entertainment products anywhere.
Following the Friday school venture, the Mammoth Site set up a booth at the Colorado Mammoth’s game at PepsiCenter on Saturday, April 11 against the San Jose Stealth. Over 16,000 fans filled the venue that night, only to see the Mammoth lose a heartbreaker in overtime 10-9. The Mammoth Site provided a basket of goodies for a lucky winner and also provided some stuffed mammoths that were a huge hit for the Colorado fans.
The Mammoth Site and the Colorado Mammoth not only have the name Mammoth in common, but are both very family-friendly attractions.

The visit to Colorado should help to boost tourism to The Mammoth Site and the Black Hills, as many of the visitors had just been here or were planning a trip this summer. More information on the Mammoth Site can be found on their website: www.MammothSite.org
