Speakers/Programs for NSL&MC's 2015 Meetings
Juniors at 6:30 PM, everyone at 7:30 PM Juniors:
Juniors: Lapidary 101: Juniors get hands-on experience in working with rocks.
• Badge program:
This program is open to kindergarten through 3rd graders who are new to learning about rocks or are familiar with the basics of rock-hounding. We follow the AFMS Rockhound Badge program by providing the children with hands-on, interactive learning opportunities in earth sciences and lapidary arts. Our goals are to foster an interest in learning more about the natural world and exposing children to concepts and vocabulary related to rocks and minerals. Families are encouraged to work on badge requirements at home as well. We start promptly at 6:30 PM.
Susan Gardner leads the program with a variety of subjects and projects for young members and junior guests.
James Keffer is a member of the Puget Sound Knappers Association, which is dedicated to stone tool and lithic art reproduction. Mr. Keffer will include a demonstration of this skill. The knappers have “knap-ins” and an annual one occurs at Glass Buttes in March; here is an OPB Oregon Field Guide link to that activity: http://www.opb.org/television/programs/ofg/segment/primitive-living/
Have you acquired or made stone tools? Let’s see.
