Natural history tour comes to Price

It was a lot like panning for gold, as these young people are look for other minerals and $1 coins.

The Utah Museum of Natural History, in conjunction with Zions Bank, brought an educational tour to Price last Thursday evening and people flocked to the event to see what was happening.

While the exhibits and hands on demonstrations were fascinating for kids, a lot of adults got into the act as well. People who came could pan for minerals, make plaster fossils, reassemble ancient pottery replicas, look at skulls of Utah mammals, learn about shells and take one home and examine rocks and minerals under a microscope.

People also got to plant sunflower seeds and take them home to watch them grow, make their own projectile points much like the ancient inhabitants of the area did and just for fun, mess with colors and get face painting done.

Along with the other exhibits were some outstanding renditions of what the proposed new Utah Museum of Natural History building will look like when it is built.
