Come enjoy geology with two presentations in one:
How to Identify those Rocks You Bring Home – Every mother struggles over the rock collections their kids bring home. What to do with them? This seminar helps boil down rock identification for kids.
How to Tumble/Polish Beautiful Stones – Every time! Complete instructions on how to choose, arrange and tumble stones to get a beautiful shine. Also, included are practical instructions on purchasing the right tumbler and grits.
After years of field study, collecting and studying the fascinating world of geology, a good friend suggested that perhaps Patrick Nurre would like to share some of my treasures with others, and from that humble beginning, Northwest Treasures was begun. The story comes full circle with not only showing where to collect things, but how and why the things you find are where they are. So the seminars and education began. This is perhaps the most important part of what we do here at Northwest Treasures. A proper understanding of geology is vital to understanding biology, anthropology, earth science and paleontology. This in turn will lead to a deeper and richer understanding of the Bible and what God has spoken there.
Patrick has done field study in the Pacific Northwest, the Midwest and Plains states, the Southwestern U.S., and Israel. He conducts geology classes and seminars in the Seattle area, and speaks at numerous home school and church conventions on geology and our young earth. He also leads a variety of geology field trips every year, including Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Rainier. The high point each year is a field trip to Yellowstone Park , where he helps families discover the Biblical geology of the Park. Patrick is the vision behind Northwest Treasures, a 501(c)3 corporation, devoted to excellent geology kits, curricula and education for all ages. To help in this endeavor, Patrick has written four high school textbooks on geology, and a rock identification field guide. In the fall of 2012, he opened the Geology Learning Center, a museum/educational center in the Seattle area. Patrick and his wife, Vicki, have three wonderful children and one grandson, and live in the Bothell, Washington.
Ages: All ages
Patrick does not charge a fee to attend his presentation but donations are appreciated to help with his expenses, including travel from the Seattle area. Please be as generous as you can!
