Re: beginner help in OK?
Bonnie, I encourage you to look at the list of the many gem and mineral clubs in your region on the US CLUB LIST page of this website. Clubs are family friendly and most have a young rockhound group. Most clubs conduct field collecting trips within a day's drive of you - all for the low price of annual dues.
I also encourage you to take your daughter to the next gem and mineral show in your region: August 15-16, 2008--TAHLEQUAH, OKLAHOMA: Show and sale; Tahlequah Rock & Mineral Society; Tahlequah Community Bldg., First St. and College Ave.; Fri. 9-5, Sat. 9-5; free admission; special exhibits, children's booths, lapidary demonstrations, live auction, contact Sara Brasel, 14236 Cross Timbers Rd., Tahlequah, OK 74464, (918) 458-0801; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
