Original artwork by Wyatt Spears, a Pikes Peak Pebble Pup. This art shows a
dinosaur finding a rock that turns out to be a smoky quartz.

By Wyatt Spears

I found a rock
I think I'm in shock
It's a smoky quartz
I'm all out of sorts

Meet the poet
Wyatt is 6 years old and 
is a distance pebble pup 
who lives in Michigan. 
He  participates in the 
pebble pup program 
via the Internet.

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.
