I was on a volunteer team cleaning trash from the riverbed near this site, or I never would have gone here. There is nothing on the fossils but the monument you can see in the photos. Even the ranger did not know where the bones...More

The Lehner Mammoth Kill Site is contained within the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area. A gravel road leads to a plaque that was erected near the spot. There is no trail or interpretive signage. You have to climb a barbwire fence to reach the...More

The site is very interesting. You get a lot of history and some geology too. From clovis Indian culture mammoth kill site to a unique layer of black particles visible in the banks of the wash in certain areas. The black particles are thought to...More
