Come see us this weekend at the Portland Regional Gem and Mineral Show, October 8-9, 2016. This is the largest rock, gem, mineral, and fossil show in the Portland area, with 45 dealers and 80 educational exhibits including a beautiful petrified wood display from the Rice NW Museum collection. And Museum executive director Julian Gray, co-author of Minerals of Georgia, will be lecturing at 1:00 pm today and tomorrow at the show.
The event takes place at the Washington County Fairplex. Saturday hours are 10 am to 6 pm; Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm. Adults $5, children 12 and under are free. Plenty of free parking is available or ride the Max to the Fair Complex/Hillsboro Airport station (stop #9838 on the Blue Line). Educational fun for the whole family. Great chance to start or enhance your own rock collection, buy beautifully crafted jewelry (“minerals you can wear”) or pieces you can use to make your own, and much more.
