Your kids will love sifting through dirt and sand at the Gemstone Mining area, searching for different gems, fossils, arrowheads & minerals in a real sluice box. They will be able to match their rocks to pictures and discoverwhat type of rock they have found. They can even learn how that particular type of rock formed and other interesting geologic information. A great hands-on fun and educational experience for the whole family.
Several different mining dirt varieties are available in the Gift Shop.
