Dinosaurs are coming! NEW mining for minerals and fossils for children. A great field trip for the family and a real learning experience. Also showing displays and information; NYS Parks and Recreation, Reinstein Woods Nature Center, Buffalo Association of Professional Geologists, Paleontological Research Institute, Penn Dixie.

This annual show provides an instant museum of Buffalo Geological Society Members’ fossils,
minerals, and jewelry; demonstrators; the famous Mini-Mine for young collectors; the new mining operation for children and adults; mineral and fossil identification; and a variety of non-profit exhibitors. This highly educational family event affords attendees the opportunity to interact with demonstrators who work with minerals and gems. Demonstrators include fossil preparation, jewelry designers, and other lapidary artists. In addition, over 32 dealers selling gems, beads, minerals, fossils, and jewelry, selling their items from around the world. A food vendor and hourly door prizes will be available.

Young scientists can visit the “Mini-Mine” that offers them the chance to search for mineral specimens in a simulated mine setting. The mining operation is for young miners who can search for minerals and fossils in a bag of sand that they wash. All who attend can experience hands-on fun and learn something new about the geological sciences. Professional Geologists will be available to discuss what geologists do and what types of jobs are present in the area for geologists.
