The Mid-Michigan Rock Club's 25th Annual Rock Show will include presentations on topics such as metal detecting, beach and rock fossil identification and rock collecting, educational displays and activities for all ages. There will be special children's events and children's rock collection displays. Dealers will have rocks, minerals, fossils and jewelry for sale. Door prizes will be awarded each day.
Special Children's Events:
We will have a scavenger hunt througout the rock show. This will allow kids to gather information related to rocks and rock hunting. This activity will be tailored to include items that could help Scouts earn Geology badges. There will also be a rock dig where kids will be able to dig for rocks and fossils they will be able to keep. There will be educational programs presented during the show. Currently, there are presentations planned for fossils, agates, geodes, and beach rocks. More events and presentations are being planned.
We are inviting rock collectors under the age of 16 to put together a small exhibit or display of some of the rocks and/or fossils that they have collected. Pre-registration is required before October 21st and can be completed by sending the required information in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Exhibit Pre-Registation" in the subject line.
