Re: [ECHO-NV] Digest Number 706
Welcome Elisa! We hope to see you. Most of us are in SC too, though we have people in Elko and Wells also.
Did you get the email about the bubble experiment in two weeks?

We live out in spring creek but would be very excited to join in on field trips! I didn't realize that this group was active this way. We have 3 children schooling at home and one in the high school out here. Our ages are 2, 4 and 9. Hope to hear from you all soon.Elisa liebelt

Well, I guess we have four geologists in the group then! Mark, myself, my husband John, and Arwen's husband--in a place like Elko, they are easy to come across. I was planning a fossil field trip as soon as things warmed and dried up bit more.
Jeanetta- are you looking for an older age kids group than what we have so far? Right now we have from 10 months to nine year olds coming. Currently we meet every other week. I'd like to get to weekly though. And I'm planning on starting some group projects together-science stuff, anything.

Is there someone in this group even, who could talk to us about how the mountains in the area were formed, and how we get the different kinds of rocks that we do in the area? Are there places to dig fossils around here? Other neat things to do for hands-on study of the earth in the Elko area? Even perhaps someone at the mines?JennettaRuby Valley
