Suzanne Morrison of Raining Rocks, a well-known expert in meteorites and a dear friend of mine, recently invited me to be a speaker at a new annual educational event that she created this year to share information about the geologic sciences and to create a scholarship for kids wanting to study these subjects in school. The event is being held February 4th – 6th & 14th – 15th, 2019, at Pima Community College here in Tucson, AZ and includes a wide range of speakers on many topics over a five day period, with two speakers presenting each evening.
The event has been a smashing success and Suzanne will be producing another series with new and exciting speakers on a wide range of subjects again next year. I felt so honored to be asked to participate in this wonderful event and I was pleased to share my presentation on my experience with collecting the agates and jaspers of the Southwest on Feb. 5th. Although I was very sick with the awful crud that has been going around, I put on my big grrrl panties and gave my presentation to the best of my ability. Thank you to Suzanne and her superlative crew for giving me this fabulous opportunity and doing such a great job for everyone in the rock, gem, and mineral community!
As soon as the video is available I will post it here.
