IDENTIFYING YOUR FINDS

In the spirit of getting out and finding new rocks our program will be a
lively video on identifying your finds. We’ll be watching a video of Bill
Nye, the Science Guy on Rocks & Soil. Okay, maybe it’s a bit corney,
but it’s always good to review your basic rockhound skills. Besides, it’s
a fun video!
