Geology is a mixed field trip and classroom learning group. We will do hands-on activities each month and are focused on engaging kids from kindergarten through 6th grade, though 7th-12th are certainly welcome to join the project. Some topics we will cover include the rock cycle, types of rocks and minerals, crystals, and special interest topics such as gold mining, space rocks, fossil hunting, and of course, rock hounding. If our club members have a particular area of interest, we are ready to dive in! One of our goals is to assist each member in creating a unique rock box collection that they will be proud to show at the Linn County Fair. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
Note: The November meeting will be held on the 3rd Thursday.
