Bay Rocks for Kids! (Alviso), Environmental Education Center, Saturday, 01. February 2020

Join volunteer and geologist, Malcom Pringle to learn about why rocks rock! What makes up the hills and habitats that surround San Francisco Bay? Bang, scratch, nick, view, (even chew?) rocks from the hills and crystals from the Bay! Ponder how and where they could have formed -- are those microfossils? Then wonder, how have they been uplifted to form the foundation for all the varied plants and animals -- and buildings! -- that we see today?  Most appropriate for school-aged learners, but all ages are welcome. Great for families and scout groups! Closed-toed shoes recommended. Reservations recommended. Questions? Call: 408-262-5513 ext 104.
