On Saturday, Nov. 14 at 11a.m., the Dietrich Theater in downtown Tunkhannock will present a Glow Show with Rick Koval. During this free program sponsored by the Overlook Estate Foundation, all ages will learn why certain rocks and minerals brightly fluoresce in a rainbow of colors under ultraviolet light while others do not.

According to Koval, “Rocks and minerals have always been an interest of mine but what really colored my world was the fascination of fluorescence. What you see isn’t always what you see, especially when it pertains to fluorescent minerals.”

During the glow show, audience members will have the opportunity to see Rick’s collection of brilliant fluorescent minerals as well as everyday items that glow in the dark. After the program, Rick will hand out free samples of fluorescent minerals.

Rick Koval is a well-known naturalist throughout the region as well as an environmental consultant and award-winning writer. Rick currently is an adjunct professor of biology courses at Keystone College as well as the resident naturalist at Skytop Lodge in the Poconos. Rick writes weekly nature columns for the Pocono Record. He’s also a local personality on WNEP’s TV show Pennsylvania Outdoor Life as the show’s naturalist and occasional co-host.
