Have you ever wondered how the land we stand upon came to be, or what those rocks are in the river bed? Then come spend the evening with a bunch of rocks. No, seriously. We will start off with a little NW geology primer, finding out the ways rocks are born and how we can tell who the rock in question is. We will go through a dozen stones, discussing where to find them (rockhounding), how they formed, and their proposed metaphysical properties. Participants will leave with a few new rock friends to take home.
