Pebble Pups Celebrate Colorado Historic Preservation Month
The Pebble Pups celebrated Colorado's Historic Preservation Month by attending a field trip in Victor and Poverty Gulch in Cripple Creek. They visited the site where Bob Womack first discovered gold in the mining district. They also visited the COD Mine that was instrumental in starting Spencer Penrose on his way to becoming a millionaire.
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.
