The IMMG is famous for it’s field trips, where we tromp around Idaho with an expert to see and discuss geology and mining history points of interest.
Each year we invite a variety of geology and mining history topics to share their knowledge with us. Lectures take place in our Learning Center.
At our annual Rock Party, hundreds of adults and young folks participate in hands-on activities, lectures, tours, hillside geo-hikes, and more! Our 2017 Rock Party is scheduled for September 17.
Mineral I.D. Friday
One of our long-time volunteer geologists Coyote Short is available every Friday from 2:30 to 4pm to identify your rock, mineral, or fossil. She can also answer your questions about geology and mining. She is a walking encyclopedia! No need to call ahead – just show up with your curiosity.
