A Poem by Luke Sattler, Earth Science Scholar

Peaks so high

Valleys so low
Where the people are . . .
As bright as the sun that shines

Rivers that flow
Snow that falls
We carve the powder that drifts

To the west—magnificent sheep climb the terraced peaks
And signs of early prospecting now grow old

To the east—easy rolling hills emblazoned with fields of corn
And the sight of pheasant and pronghorn going to flight aren't unheard of

Among the stars and city lights

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.
