Immerse your children in the world of geology and earth science with a hands-on approach by attending your local rock & mineral club. The Indian Mounds Rock & Mineral Club holds a picnic at 6:30 pm, on the 3rd Tuesday, June through August at Pinery Park in Wyoming (on DeHoop just north of 28th Street, weather permitting). Our usual spot is the northwest tables behind the north parking lot on the west side of DeHoop. Bring a hot and cold dish to share, your own drinks, and table service.

Children's activities are planned as part of the Future Rockhounds of America program through the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies. Children earn badges while learning about and collecting rocks and minerals.
