Report & photos by Clay Graham / Selah Adventures – Selah Community & Tourism

On Wednesday July 15th, 2015, with the help of others, Perry Tech welding students placed the life size mammoth silhouette they have been working on for the Wenas Mammoth Foundation. It was place off of South Wenas Road in Selah, Washington near the site where mammoth bones were found in 2005.

Wenas Mammoth Foundation President Bronwyn Mayo said, “The Foundation hopes someday to build a museum with a classroom near the dig site”.
