August Field Trip – August 26-27, 2017 WA Mineral Council’s Annual Camp Out

August Field Trip: August 26 – 27, 2017

This WA Mineral Council’s Annual Camp Out in the Greenwater area. You can go camping for the weekend or just meet us on Saturday or/and Sunday for a single day of rock hunting. Everyone is welcome and you DO NOT need to participate in the camping portion. You can meet us at the Ranger Station on the day most convenient for you. If you do enjoy camping then please join us for a great time with fellow rockhounders, their families, friends and a chance to talk all you want about rocks.

We will be looking for agates, jaspers, opal and petrified wood.

Tools needed are gloves, sturdy shoes, drinking water, dig and lite hand tools plus a backpack or bucket to haul your treasures in. If you are planning on spending the entire weekend camping you will need all your camping gear and food.

Tony Johnson is our Field Guide and you can call him if you have any questions. 253-863-9238

Meet both Saturday and Sunday at the Enumclaw Ranger Station parking lot. 450 Roosevelt Ave E, Enumclaw 98022. The group leaves promptly at 9 am. So don’t be late!
