On July 10, 2015, the President signed an Executive Order designating the Waco Mammoth National Monument! This prestigious honor was made possible through years of collaboration of the City of Waco, Baylor University, Waco Mammoth Foundation and the citizens of Waco. Waco Mammoth National Monument is the 408th unit of the National Park Service and 14th unit in Texas.
