February 2019: We are very pleased to announce that Junior Rockhounds meteings will resume on Monday, February 18.
The meetings have a different topic each week, such as minerals, fossils, gemstones, geology, and dinosaurs. They include fun hands-on activities and discussions with an expert. Parents stay with their children, and may get a lot out of the meetings too! You don't have to be a member to attend; please come out and see what it's all about.
