Calling all rock hounds! Join naturalists Susie Spikol and Julie Brown for a different rockin’ outing each month from August through November. We’ll explore rock and mineral collections, visit geological sites, and connect with geologists, all while keeping our eye out for special stones, fossils, and more.

Other outings will include a visit to the Harris Center in Hancock on August 4, an exploration of Gilsum’s Mine History on October 7, and a field trip to the Beneski Museum at Amherst College on November 4. Come rock out with us!

This is a club for families with elementary-aged children and up to attend together. Children must be accompanied by an adult for all meetings.

10 a.m. to noon at Beryl Mountain in Acworth. Space is limited, and separate registration is required for each meeting.

For general information about Harris Center field trips, see our Outings Information page. For more information about this particular outing, including questions about accessibility, contact Susie.
