Baylor University's Sue and Frank Mayborn Natural Science and Cultural History Museum Complex has received a $100,000 grant from the M.D. Anderson Foundation to fund the Natural History Exploration Station within the Permanent Exhibits Gallery at the Harry and Anna Jeanes Discovery Center.
A group of interested local residents have joined together to help Baylor University purchase 105 acres that surround the Waco Mammoth site. "Buddy" and Virginia Bostick donated $100,000 and Don and Pam Moes gave another $25,000 to add to Liz McGlasson's donation of a $50,000 reduction in price to buy 50 acres bordering the site on the west and south sides connecting with Steinbeck Bend Road. Previously, the Bosticks and Moes had donated $100,000 and $75,000, respectively, to purchase 55 acres from the mammoth site down to the Bosque River frontage.
