Membership Weekend Fun: Party in the Park!

Click to learn more! Stonerose is thrilled to revive our popular local Auction on April 29! Membership Weekend is April 28-30, 2017, and we hope you’ll join other members for fun and fossils during this exclusive weekend.  Not a member? Join now and you can dig with other members. You don’t have to be a member to join us for the Party in the Park!

Members can begin digging Friday April 28, at 8 am.  Join us Friday from 5:30 until 6:30 for a presentation given by Dr. Melanie DeVore entitled “Republic Fossil Plants:  Stinging and Scratching Friends from the Past”.  At the Senior Center at the top of Clark Street.

Saturday, members dig from 8am until 3pm.  There will be a microscopy demonstration available in the Center to show members an inexpensive way to photograph and obtain digital scopes. You’ll be able to check out your find with the microscope! How fun is that?

 The annual Membership meeting will commence at 5pm at the Sr. Center, just one block away from the Interpretive Center. Then back to the Party in the Park at 5:30pm, where everyone will enjoy bites, beverages, and a silent auction, followed by a short but exciting live auction!

The popular “Guided Dig with 3G” will be offered on Sunday, April 30 from 10am-1pm.  The cost to learn to properly quarry a site at the restricted “Corner Lot” site is $40 per person and includes a hearty, healthy snack.  Email us stonerose@frontier to reserve your spot with the fabulous Gregg Wilson!
