Saturday Kids’ Activity: Geology Is Everywhere: Mount St. Helens

May 11 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Event Series Event Series (See All)

Drop in any time between 1:00 and 3:00 p.m. for a hands-on kids’ activity!

Attention, (junior) geology enthusiasts! Join us for an exciting series of touch and learn sessions on geology. Master Naturalist and geology/earth sciences educator Jamie Watson will be leading these drop-in sessions the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month from April through July.

Geology is everywhere! In May, we’ll look at the effect the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens had on Missoula – yes, the ash rained down here, too.  Learn about volcanoes and igneous rocks! Bring your map from April’s activity (we’ll have more to pass out, too), so you can add in the locations of the different kinds of rocks we’re learning about and go see them for yourself!

Cost: Free with membership / cost of admission.
