Prescott's Central Arizona Geology Club is one of the most dynamic groups in the state. The group's monthly meeting includes a show 'n tell where members bring out a rock they found or had stashed away for years, to get the group's interpretation of what it is. It creates a fun, relaxed, interactive atmosphere. At right, Yavapai College geology prof Beth Boyd solicits ideas on the origin of a specimen she's had for 24 years. Club president Debbie Allen is standing at left. She blogs about club activities and more at http://centralarizonageologyclub.blogspot.com/
I had the privilege of giving a talk on geologic hazards to the group Wednesday night at the Prescott Library. Big turnout and great discussion and questions. It's exciting to see such a wonderfully dynamic geologic community in the area.
