The tusk is currently on display at the Burke Museum, and they’re seeking the help of the public to name the fossil. Education Program Manager at the Burke Museum, Andrea Michelbach drops by to give us more information!
You can see the tusk over the next two weekends at the Burke Museum.
There are THREE ways you can help name the tusk: Online atSeattleMammoth.org, in person at the museum by filling out a Name the Mammoth coloring sheet, or print out a coloring sheet and mail it to the Burke Museum.
The winners of the naming contest will be announced in April – they will win a membership to the Burke Museum, a special behind-the-scenes tour of the Burke paleontology collection, and a personalized gift bag.
Thanks to KING TV for this.
