Hunt Leader: Geologist Victoria Como
Join us for a mineral scavenger hunt at Camp Hero on Montauk Point! We’ll scour the beach for some of the most commonly found minerals (and some rare ones, too!) We’ll use geologists’ tools like hand lenses and rock hammers to get a better look at the minerals inside the rocks. And we’ll perform an experiment to figure out why only the hardest minerals outlast weathering and erosion. Bring a bucket or backpack to help carry the rocks we’ll study.
Advance reservations are required for all events. For more information, reservations, and directions to meeting places, please call: (631) 537-9735.
