Be a Backyard Geologist

Understanding the Rocks in your Backyard
Age group: All Ages

Join us to learn about the the geological formations and rocks that can be found in any "backyard." During this session you'll learn about types of rocks you might find in your backyard or local parks and creeks. You'll discover how to identify them, how they formed and how to create a rock collection.  We hope this will help you gain a stronger understanding of the natural processes that create the landscape we inhabit.  We hope you will be inspired to explore becoming a hobby, or full time, geologist.
