Do you love rocks? The Friends have a great event for you! On Saturday, Oct. 25 we are hosting a Geoheritage Tour as a fundraiser for Friends activities. It starts in Perth at the Crystal Palace/Tay Basin (click here for a map) to explore the geological features at that site, followed by a bus trip to the park with stops of geological interest along the way, lunch at the Lally Homestead and a tour of the Silver Queen Mine, all guided by those-in-the-know as far as rocks go! (See below.) Tickets are $50 per person and will be held for you. To book your ticket, click here. Pre-registration is required by noon on Oct. 22 and space is limited. Please support the Friends!
