Mammoth sculpture will mark trailhead in City of North Las Vegas
WHAT: Protectors of Tule Springs, Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada and the City of North Las Vegas will welcome a group of elected officials, community leaders and volunteers for a special announcement and to see firsthand the work in progress on the Monumental Mammoth sculpture.
The public art project, conceived by local Gold Award Girl Scout Tahoe Mack, is being developed in partnership with Protectors of Tule Springs and will eventually mark a trailhead in the City of North Las Vegas leading into Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument.
The artists involved in the project will share their plan to bring Mack’s vision for the project to life and give a demonstration of the current phase of construction.
Exceeding 16 ft. tall, the sculpture will be a “mammoth” representation of the many ice age animals that roamed in this area during the Pleistocene Epoch.
