Month Presenter: Jerry Cangelosi
Program: Rockhounding the Great Lakes
The Great Lakes region has 1/5 of the world’s fresh water and a diverse geology, portions of it dating back 3.5 billion years. Jerry Cangelosi grew up in Michigan and will walk us through some of the area’s points of interest to rockhounds.
These range from easy-picking fossils and Petoskey stones along the Lake Michigan shoreline to the copper agates, thomsonites, mines, and shipwrecks of Lake Superior. The geology of the old “Northwest Territory” is different from that of the modern Pacific Northwest, but there are similarities as well.
As you know, Rick always sees things in rocks. Do you? Should we guess or will you tell?
