On Friday October 29, 2010 we presented our program Gold Rush to the seniors attending the Grove Senior Center in Asheville, NC. The program was sponsored by Asheville Parks & Recreation. The senior participants had an opportunity to “roll up their sleeves” and become prospectors. We panned for gems, as the prospectors had done during the days of the gold rush. We learned all about gems, and did geological classification tests on the gems we found. Great fun and learning was had by all.
