Pinal Geology and Mineral Museum (pinalgeologymuseum.org)
We need volunteers to help open the Museum. We are going to try to open the Museum two days a week for now, Friday, and Saturday. Hours for the Museum are 10 AM to 2 PM.
We will have a meeting and workday at the Museum for volunteers on Wednesday January 11 at 10 AM. If you are a new volunteer and can’t make that meeting, please let me know and we can meet at a different time.
We need to make more treasure bags for kids. And for new volunteers we will go over procedures, exhibits, and kid’s activities. We have a treasure hunt for kids to answer questions about the exhibits and they get a prize for completing it, and the fossil dig.
