Lake George Pebble Pup Celebrates National Poetry Month (April)

Fun with Geology
By: Ciena Higginbotham

Geology is very fun
So much to explore
Digging, searching, all day long
Crystals, gems and more
Geology is very fun
So much to uncover
Topaz, pyrite, quartz, and gold
Look, I found another!
Geology is very fun
So much to survey
Where should we go searching next?
Let’s go! Come this way!

Welcome! This is the gateway to adventure and discovery

Through this blog pebble pups and junior members of the Colorado Springs Mineralogical Society can access their lessons, work on assignments and projects, and receive details about field trips in the Pikes Peak Region. This Internet program is also suitable for young people who are interested in Earth science but do not live near a rock club or gem and mineral society or for young people anywhere who want a deeper dive into these topics. The only requirement is that all participants must be members of the Colorado Springs Mineralogical Society and must fill out the CSMS membership form (under important websites) and send their registration and membership fee in. Steven Veatch is the senior instructor and will need an email from you with your name, address, phone number, and permission from your parents to participate in this program.
