Children get close up look at rocks, fossils during Master Naturalist Discover Series 

Two groups of students had the opportunity to turn into miniature geologists for an afternoon on Monday. As part of their Kids Discover series, the Guadalupe Master Naturalists hosted a homeschoolers session and after school session of Discover Rocks, Senses and Sediments at the Seguin Public Library.

The children had the opportunity to learn about the tools geologists use on the job; observe and take notes of different rocks and fossils and make their own sediment using cranberries, peanut butter, coconut, chocolate chips and oatmeal. At the end of the Kids Discover series — the students have the chance to become a young naturalist and earn the Guadalupe County Young Naturalist award.

This area was part of the interesting Cretaceous geologic period of sixty-plus million years. Petrified wood is quite common, as are the fossilized remains of extinct plants and creatures. The area also contains cultural artifacts from earlier civilizations.
