Do you have a burning desire to “give back”? The HGS is teaming up with the YMCA to have a Volunteer Day on Saturday, February 16th, 2019.  The volunteer work we do that day will be at Camp Cullen, a YMCA summer camp located near Trinity, Texas.  We chose to help Camp Cullen this year for several reasons.  First of all, most of the kids attending Camp Cullen are from the Houston area. Also, many are from underprivileged families and attend the camp free of charge. Last, but not least, there is a significant geology component to the camp’s programs with an actual geologic field trip in the quarry, a geology lab with hand samples onsite, and a “gold” panning area for younger kids.  HGS also conducts its Outcrop Family Campout here each year.

The work planned for our group this year is to work with other volunteers in the gold panning area to build a Saloon Façade, a Bank Façade, A Jail Façade, a Mine Shaft Entrance, and a Water Tower to complete the Old West look and feel of the area.

So, if you would like to do a good deed, spend a nice day in the Piney Woods, and perhaps help get kids interested in geoscience, please consider donating part of a Saturday to this effort.  You don’t need any special skills, just a willingness to help.  Depending on where you are located in the Houston area, it takes about 1 to 1 ½ hours to get to the camp.  The YMCA has also agreed to provide a bus to transport our volunteers if we get a good crowd.  If you want to help, please contact HGS member John Adamick at your earliest convenience.
