Field Trip suggestions

Tim, our Field Trip Chairman,  recommends each person bring: 

  • A container with a handle (for instance a five gallon paint bucket) to carry rocks you find.
  • A hand brush to brush river residue off of rocks picked up out of the water.
  • A rock hounder scoop or a trowel.
  • A wide rim hat, long sleeves, sun shades, and sun screen.
  • A box in your car to put gathered rocks into from your bucket (so you can pick up even more!).
  •  A picnic lunch and related paraphernalia
