School and Scouting groups are always welcome at the show. A badge requirement, “Make A Fossil” is one of our many activities.

Activities throughout both days will include demonstrations of lapidary techniques, glass-bead making, wire wrapping and rock polishing.  A silent auction will offer rock and mineral treasures.  On hand will be a select group of dealers with gems, minerals, fossils, stone beads, Idaho opals, silver  craft, finished jewelry, tools, lapidary supplies and books about earth science and more.

To have something for everyone in the family, we will also have Book and Plant Sales. It’s a great opportunity to do some early Holiday shopping. We really do have some excellent prices on jewelry and mineral curiosities from around the globe.

Most of all, it is a great opportunity to have some fun!
