At 8 p.m., the program “Rocks, Minerals, and Gemstones” is an introduction to geology. In addition to the information provided, you will get to examine some unusual specimens.

Please bring some type of seating for the movie “Lewis and Clark” at 9:00.

All programs will begin behind the restroom / pool house.
