Rock lovers gather together to celebrate their love of Geology.
The event is predicted to be the biggest Geology Expo Western has hosted with rock and mineral vendors from all over Wyoming. There will be maps, rocks and minerals for sale – even those from Western’s own collection! Those who would like to bring their own collection of rocks can have them identified by Dr. Dana Pertermann, Associate Professor of Anthropology and Geology.
A few of the Wyoming rock and mineral vendors who will be present include Silver Smith’s Wire Wrapping, Cowboy Minerals, Scott’s Bonsai Stone, Fire Agate by Wortman, Vikki’s Holistic Stones and Oils, and many more.
The event is designed for community members, students and faculty to celebrate their love of Wyoming’s geology as well as to raise money for Western student opportunities such as fieldwork, scholarships and more. This is a family friendly event with food and drinks available. Children are welcome.
The event is sponsored by the Geology Program at Western, the Bureau of Land Management, The Wyoming Geological Survey, and Circle K International.
