Patrick Nurre, speaker and author, was in the second grade when he made his first big geology find – a large dinosaur bone in the alley behind his house! This was the beginning of a lifelong love of geology. Today, Patrick is a popular speaker on geology and worldview, and teaches classes and leads geology field trips, including his Yellowstone Creation Adventure and Columbia River Family Geology Camps. Patrick’s non-profit ministry, Northwest Treasures, creates geology kits and curricula from a young-Earth perspective. He is the author of sixteen geology textbooks and is a Certified Biblical Creation Ministry Professional. In addition, he draws on over 40 years of pastoring experience. Patrick and his wife, Vicki, have three children and four grandchildren, and live in Bothell, Washington.
