The Arizona Museum of Natural History is hosting Family and Scout Geology Day tomorrow in Mesa.
“Arizona has amazing geology! We have spectacular landforms, plus beautiful rocks and minerals,” said Kathy Eastman, curator of education for the Arizona Museum of Natural History. “Admission for this special event is discounted over our regular admission, plus folks have the opportunity to make rock collections, learn about their favorite minerals and Arizona fossils. There will be plenty of activities meeting requirements for Scout belt loops and pins.”
On Family/Scout Geology Day, everyone can learn about their favorite rocks and minerals, have fun making a rock collection or bring in some rocks for the Rock Identification Station. Learn about volcanoes, and make a plaster cast of a real fossil. This action-packed morning will not only be fun; it will fulfill all requirements for the Scout Geology pin.
The Nov. 5 event will be from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Arizona Museum of Natural History, 53 N. Macdonald in downtown Mesa. Special discount general admission rates of $7 per person and $2 for members will apply only for the early opening time.
