“Dee and the Mammoth”

by Gene Gagliano, illustrated by Zak Pullen

“Dee and the Mammoth” is a children’s book written by Gene Gagliano of Buffalo, WY, and illustrated by Zak Pullen of Casper. It is inspired by the discovery of Dee the Mammoth, but in this story, Dee is a little girl who tells a story about a mammoth through letters from her dad who is working on a mammoth dig. The book also includes a DVD which features an audio version of the book, and a documentary film about the Tate Museum’s Dee the Mammoth.

Where is the Tate Geological Museum?

We are part of Casper College in Casper, Wyoming. The Casper College address is 125 College Drive, but that is the whole college. This Google Maps link will provide directions right to the front of our building.

The following directions are based on the Google Maps version of “125 College Drive”: From the base of Casper College, get onto Casper Mountain Road and go south (uphill). Go through the stoplight (wait for it to turn green), continue uphill (south), past the road to the right that leads into the college and then take the next road on the right. The Tate Museum is right in front of you, a bit to the right.

Stop by for a visit!

Thank you to the Blue Envelope Health Fund for generously donating two AEDs to the Tate. One is located at the museum and the other is taken into the field during our many digs, field trips and expeditions. THANK YOU!
