Join us for a weekend celebration of all things mammoth! Say farewell to LuLu’s tusk before it goes behind the scenes for conservation, see the bones of a nearly-complete mammoth skeleton and more:

  • Watch as Burke staff take an inventory of bones from a nearly-complete mammoth skeleton found near Richland, WA in 1978, and prepare them for display in the future.
  • See dozens of mammoth specimens, including the first mammoth tooth found in Seattle, near Golden Gardens in 1891.
  • Sign LuLu’s cast! Visitors will be invited to sign the plaster field jacket covering LuLu’s tusk before it goes behind the scenes for conservation.
  • Make mammoth crafts to take home.
  • Snap a picture at our life-sized mammoth photo wall!

Discover more about LuLu's tusk on our website: seattlemammoth.org.
