Mary Pat Weber - Stromatolites
This month Mary Pat Weber will introduce us to “Stromatolites, Past & Present”, a complex melding of biology, chemistry and geology. Considered to be the earliest known
lifeforms on Earth, the ancient organisms that created stromatolites are believed to have played a major role in the development of life on this planet.
As a former exploration geologist, Mary Pat is fascinated with these fossils and the processes that form them. Over the years the Webers have traveled to several well known stromatolite locations such as Northern Minnesota, Glacier National Park and Shark Bay, Australia.
As a long time and active member of her mineral club, Ms. Weber has served as the “Pandemic President” of The Conejo Gem and Mineral Club for the past few years. She enjoys exhibiting her specimens at local mineral clubs and is a consistent blue ribbon winner at the Ventura County Fair. As a collector, she will have a sampling of stromatolite specimens at the meeting for club members to see.
General meetings are held the second Tuesday of the month at 7PM at the
Downtown Anaheim Community Center
250 East Center Street, Anaheim, CA 92805
The April meeting is normally rescheduled as the Center is
closed for Maintenance.
Non-members are welcome at the General meetings, in fact we are glad to have an opportunity to show you a little bit of what the Searchers is about.
Standard meeting format is an overview of club activities followed by an educational presentation.
