Pan for gold, learn about silver smithing, play a game, polish a Petoskey stone, crack open a geode, build a mineral collection, search out fossils, buy some beads; all this and more can be done at this event. Learn about geology thorough the many KGMS members’ displays. Hourly door prizes and a grand prize drawing.
