The Mammoth Site is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization that is an educational and research facility that is funded mainly by tourism, grants, donations, and memberships. We are the only fully accredited museum in the Black Hills and one of three in the entire state of South Dakota. The Mammoth Site is an active paleontology dig which boasts the remains of over 60 mammoths making us the most extensive collection of Columbian mammoths in the entire world. We have an active Geospatial Center, with ArcGIS software, 3D scanning, and 3D printing capabilities. The new Mammoth Site Field Station has plans to be a premier Field Station in the region providing educational programming and research opportunities for visiting students and researchers from across the globe. Over 100,000 guests walk through our doors each year for guided tours of the in-situ Bonebed, view into the preparation lab and molding and casting labs, or participate in school field trip programming.

The Science Educator will develop new curriculum and maintain current programming and initiatives. She/he will be instructing classes, reach out to local schools, and assist in outreach activities. This individual will be an integral member of the Division of Education and will act as the point person for all K-12 programming.

The Mammoth Site sits at the southern edge of the beautiful Black Hills in the cozy town of Hot Springs. Known as the Southern Gateway of the Black Hills, Hot Springs downtown has distinct sandstone architecture, naturally warm water springs to soak in, and great weather year-round.  Public school children will learn in small class sizes and have access to multiple parks throughout the town. Many starter homes are available in the area, some of which provide lovely views of the Black Hills.
