Peter inside a Rock

Peter Ian Russell

Curator Emeritus

I am one of those lucky people who have spent a lifetime exploring the world of geology, gathering specimens for the museum, rocks for my rock garden, preparing displays and presentations on the subject for the museum and Wat on Earth Newsletter. After being curator since the early 1970’s I now volunteer one day a week as needed.
