Rocks & Minerals
Culver City has a very active rock and mineral club (so quaint!) and they have an annual show called the Fiesta of Gems. Lots to see and learn here, including a table just for kids to touch, and many interesting specialty items including scrimshaw and fossils. Kiddo was too small to see most of the table displays and too touchy to allow me to relax, but this was a neat way to spend a couple of hours, and considering it's down the street, too close to pass up. We'll hit this again in the future.
Jackson's showing off his new geology cards and his FREE "mountain rock." In addition to the educational table, the club gave a free (pretty) rock to everyone under the age of 16.
