Maps & Directions

Join us as we explore the beauty and the complexity of sand.  Examine actual samples of red, yellow, pink, black, green and even purple sand from the presenter's private collection.  Explore the microscopic beauty of individual grains; inspect round, egg shaped, and star shaped sand grains to discover clues to their origin; watch sand dunes march along the beach and across vast deserts; observe individual sand grains bouncing in the wind; learn about the structure of various sand dunes; listen to recordings of "singing" and "barking sand"; meet some of the many ocean and land animals that make their home in the sand; and browse through an eclectic gallery of sand sculptures.  You will never look at sand the same way again.
