2022 Field Trips
BASEMENT FIELD TRIP - March 26, 2022
Around 20 brave members ignored the cold damp weather to travel to the South Haven area on March 26th. The first stop was at the home of Bob and Julia Sherwood for about 2 hours. Their fairly large collection is in several rooms of the house. In addition, Bob had displayed on a large work table in the basement, some of their recently collected rock specimens from New Mexico as well as a number of slabs and/or polished petrified wood limbs for sale.
At noon, most of the group went for lunch in downtown South Haven. Around 1:30 they went to the nearby home of Gary and Susan Katt where a few more members showed up as well. Gary spends much of his collecting efforts in the Keweenaw Peninsula focused on greenstones. His collection of these raw stones and polished gems is extraordinary. Everyone was also able to see his, as well as Bob's workspace with various saws, grinding wheels and polishing drums.
