Do you have a rock that you have collected because it caught your eye but don’t know what it is? Bring it down to the Museum to have a professional geologist help identify it. If you don’t already have a favourite rock, you might find one among the select samples that we will have available for you to handle and learn about.
Admission to the Museum is free for this drop-in event as a part of the province-wide APGEA Rock and Fossil clinic.
