Fossils are the focus of the keynote speaker at the annual Rock Show at Timberline School.

Dinosaurs and fossils on our doorsteps

The Elasmosaur is a passion of Pat Trask, assistant curator of science at the Courtenay Museum

The Elasmosaur is a passion of Pat Trask, assistant curator of science at the Courtenay Museum.  This complete skeleton was found on the Puntledge River in the early 80’s.   Pat will be a keynote speaker at the annual Rock Show of the Ripple Rock Gem and Mineral Club.  He will give an engaging presentation on the fossils and dinosaurs  that form the rich history of our locale.  The Show will be on June 11 and 12 at the Timberline School beginning at 10am each day.

There will be rock and fossil displays, lapidary and gold panning demonstrations, vendors from all over the Pacific Northwest, a kid’s corner, door prizes, silent auction, and a concession featuring barbequed food. Bring your favourite rock to the “Ask An Expert” table for identification.

Admission is $3 and kids under 12 accompanied by an adult get in free.
