Northwoods Geology Club 2nd Annual Rock Swap and meeting notice
The Northwood's Geology Club will hold a 2nd annual rock swap on Saturday, June 3, 2017 from 8:00 to 2:00 CST. Location: Pavillion near the Florence, Wisconsin Fire Hall and Senior Center. The rock swap is held in conjunction with the city-wide rummage sale. Come and see what we have to sell and also learn more about our club and foster an appreciation for geology. Throughout the year we schedule many interesting speakers for our meetings and in the summer months we also do many field trips to rock and mineral collection sites. Come to our rock swap and find out more!
Vendors: If you plan on setting up a spot to sell rock and mineral related items, please see our web page for more information and a form to fill out. (northwoodsgeologyclub.org) Vendors can call to be added to our list and then bring the form when you come to set up. We just ask for a small donation upon setup.
The Northwoods Geology Club will meet on Wednesday, May 24th at 6:30 CST in the lower level of the Florence Natural Resource Center. Coffee and snacks will be available and door prizes are drawn at all meetings. Admission is free and all ages are welcome.
If you are even a little bit curious on the subject of rock polishing, whatever age you are, this would be the meeting for you. Joe Tatar will be speaking on the topic of rock polishing. He has many years of experience and will inform us on the types of rocks that can be polished and the steps involved to obtain beautiful collection pieces. This is an excellent opportunity to learn new skills or expand your knowledge on polishing. He has a wonderful exhibit to go along with his presentation.
Please visit our website or else on Facebook for more information.
We are thinking about forming a Junior Rock Club.
