Become a Conejo Explorer with the Conejo kids! Here are some fun facts about living in the Conejo Valley:
MAMMOTH BONES FOUND- On the corner of Hillcrest Drive and Ventu Park Road an Imperial Mammoth jaw bone was found in 1971 - maybe the largest ever discovered! The Mammoths lived in the Conejo Valley about 150,000 years ago. They were "14 feet tall and weighed about 40,000 pounds!!" WOW-
The Stagecoach Inn Museum has bones of this Mammoth, which were recovered during the construction of roads in the area. See them at the Grand Opening of Anderson Hall this summer!
You can look up more information on Imperial Mammoths at your local library, at our Museum Library, or on the Internet. We even have the Conejo Kids books for sale! We live in a place that has lots of exciting things to see.
Information for Conejo kids on this subject from Miriam Sprankling's book: "Discovering the Story of the Conejo Valley", published by CVHS 2002.
