    Have you ever cracked open a rock to see what's inside?  Have you ever wondered what you'd reach if you just kept digging the deepest hole you could?  If so, you might be a budding geologist!  If you're curious about the Earth and everything inside it, You're in the right place.  Come out to the refuge on February 18 to learn about geology.  During this program, we will be digging deep into the topic of what the Earth is made of through lots of fun activities!  Come join us on February 18 for a free class for ages 5-10 and we'll learn how geology rocks!
