'Collecting New Mexico'

-A A +A

Don’t miss the 44th annual Earth Treasure Show, sponsored by the Los Alamos Geological Society. The show will be from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Dec. 8 and from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Dec. 9 at the Masonic Lodge, on the corner of 15th Street and Canyon. Note that the show has been moved one week later than usual, to coincide with WinterFest activities around town.
This year’s theme is “Collecting New Mexico.” Activities include exhibits, a silent auction, geode sawing, a wheel of fortune and food. Budding geologists of all ages are invited to bring their rocks and minerals for identification. In addition, a special craft activity is planned for this year; the Sand Man from Ouray, Colo., will provide sand, jars and expertise on the art of creating sand jar scenes at the kids craft table. This piece of smithsonite, the New Mexico state mineral, is from the Kelly Mine in Magdalena.
