Everything comes from something and that something is the Earth. Introducing children to prospecting and rock hounding offers an interesting, educational platform to teach them about minerals, natural resources, conservation and much, much more.
The things around us that aren't grown, are usually mined and it all began with discovery through prospecting. Imagine the discoveries you can make with your child while exploring the great outdoors, right in your own neighborhood.
Find the Central Maryland GPAA booth at your next festival, fair or community gathering. We often participate in local events where we set up our "hands on" gold panning station for the kids and adults alike. With local, historical photos, location information and displays of real Maryland Gold, we help to educate the general public about the age old joys of prospecting the mineral resources right under their feet. If you haven't seen our booth at an event near you, suggest it!
Everyone attending a monthly meeting has the opportunity of leaving with a nice picker!
