MSA EVENTS & SPEAKERS

ONLINE EVENT - OCTOBER 8th, 2020 @ 7.30 pm (AZ time)

"Arizona's kartchner caverns state park" 
Presented by Mr. BOB Jones

OCTOBER meeting will be virtual via ZOOM.

Our October 8th program will be presented by our own Mr. Bob Jones, “Arizona’s Kartchner Caverns State Park.” Arizona's Kartchner Caverns are ranked among the top ten most beautiful caverns in the world. They were discovered in the foothills of Arizona's Whetstone Mountains in 1974 by two spelunkers who kept them secret for 14 years while convincing the state of Arizona to buy the land and open the Caverns as a State Park. In 1992 I was appointed to the Kartchner Caverns Advisory Board and allowed to explore the Caverns and take photos during construction. The story of the discovery and development of Kartchner Caverns State Park is the subject of my talk.

Mark the date on your calendars as Mineralogical Society of Arizona is very lucky for a Bob Jones Talk!
