“We love mineralogy, geology, rockhounding, paleontology, lapidary arts — anything related to rocks! We are dedicated to learning, exploring, sharing, and educating others so they can enjoy earth science as much as we do.”
Our last trip was a big hit so we are going again! This field trip is only for members of the Billings Gem & Mineral Club so refer to the trip info emailed June 2nd. Be sure to let Greg Thorson know you are coming so waits for you at the rendezvous point. As always, pack your own water, lunch, and snacks.
June’s presentation is on agates formed in the Pennsylvanian Limestone 245–300 million years ago during the Paleozoic Era. The focus is on Bear Canyon, Dryhead, HooDoo, Teepee Canyon, Fairburn, and others. Come see beautiful specimens of these agates and learn where they can be found.
Doug True and his wife, Jeanette, are longtime members of the Billings Gem and Mineral Club. Doug has held various leadership positions in the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies, American Land Access Association, and the Northwest Federation of Mineralogical Societies, in addition to our local club. He is a well-known expert on agates, minerals, fossils, and geology in general.
