The Buffalo Geological Society Picnic on August 1st in Williamsville had a good turnout as the weather was perfect, the grilled hot dogs and burgers on the grill were tasty, the potluck dishes were awesome and folks shared their summer finds and sold a few excess minerals. Here are some photos from the picnic.
