WACO -- If Congressman Bill Flores has his way, Waco will soon be home to a National Park.
The Congressman asked the National Resource Committee Tuesday to make Mammoth Park a national site in hopes to bring in more tourist money.
Flores emphasized the Waco Mammoth Site is believed to be the world's largest concentration of Columbian Mammoth to die in a single event.
"I look forward to working with my colleagues on the committee to ensure this national recognition becomes a reality, and this new partnership approach with the national park service will allow the citizens of Waco to share this true national treasure in Central Texas with the world," said Flores.
Waco City Manager Larry Groth was there to testify on behalf of the Mammoth Site.
Once the committee signs on, the bill will be sent to the House for a full vote.
