I’m pretty sure every kid goes through a rocks and minerals phase. Simple walks around the neighborhood turn into searches for crystals and quartz. Living in Oregon we are part of a rich geological history. Not all states can boast a state rock (hello, thunderegg!) along with federal lands that actually invite rock hunting.
Here’s our webliography of resources for learning more about rocks and minerals, along with a link to our catalog to find more books for exploring. Happy rock hunting!
