Geology for Rockhounds class
Bob teaches this popular prospecting course indoors, usually during winter or spring. You’ll have 2 days of fun with pretty rocks, and a few ugly ones, as you learn to identify which rock types and structures to look in for crystals, agates, and gems.
No science or geology background is needed. The class is jargon-free, but you’ll learn to interpret the often confusing information in geologic reports, maps, and other references. By the end of this class, you’ll be able to recognize clues to geologic goodies from a distance, you’ll know which construction areas and road cuts are worth a look, and you’ll have the confidence to walk away from over-dug localities to find new ones nearby.
- Usually taught on two consecutive Saturdays, in the Seattle area. Or can be presented for your group at any NW location.
- For groups, minimum number of participants is 15.
- This is an adult course, but interested teenagers are welcome.
$95/person, for two four-hour sessions. Optional field trips are available.
2012 DATES: March 4 & 11, noon to 4 p.m. in Woodinville.
