CORINTH, MS. Jimmy Spencer, CCE’s Professional Geologist , recently spoke to the local Cub Scout Pack 123, Den 4, about geology and the role geologists play in our environment. This meeting was the first step in the process for these Cub Scouts to receive their Earth Rocks Badge. This is an elective badge the Cub Scouts are taking to advance from Webelos 2 to Boy Scouts. It was also a chance for the Scouts to get an overview of geology in preparation for a couple of field trips, one to W.M. Browning Cretaceous Fossil Park in Frankstown, MS, to dig for shark’s teeth and other fossils, and one to Cathedral Caverns in Alabama to explore the caves.
The Cub Scouts involved in the seminar were Hayden Latch, Tilden Studdard, Jackson Norman, and John Thomas Draper. Cub Scout Den Leaders Mark and Kristie Studdard were present along with parent Chris Latch.
