The nonprofit organization Protectors of Tule Springs (POTS) worked for years to help create the Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument and is now assisting the National Park Service with clean-up efforts and educational opportunities. This year’s Mammoth Penny Push will directly support POTS by raising awareness of Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument and will provide educational resources for Clark County classrooms, such as self-contained teaching kits with lesson plans and supplies.

In March, CCSD students may learn in their classrooms about the Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument, a National Park Unit in Clark County, and have the opportunity to donate to the Mammoth Penny Push campaign.
