Course Detail: OSH-WHTRCK - What's That Rock? A Basic Guide to Rock and Mineral Identification

'What's That Rock' is a basic guide to rock and mineral identification for the interested hobbyist or hiker. We will examine typical examples of igneous - lava - rocks (we will study metamorphic and sedimentary rocks in future classes). Bring along your own rock collection for a stump the professor session! A small x10 hand lens (loupe) is required for this course. I have a few spare, but please bring your own.
