Field Trips & Attractions

Please join us on our next field trip!

Our club organizes many field trips each year.  We visit local collecting sites,  museums, mines, and much more.   All members are welcome to join us on any scheduled field trips. Field trips are advertised in our monthly newsletters and sign up sheets are available at the monthly general meetings.

Any member attending a field trip must sign a liability waiver.

Our newsletters include field trip reports, photos, and you can view specimens collected on the trips at the monthly general meetings.

Many of our leaders have taken the club to places that produce wonderful pieces to add to any rockhound collection.

If you interested in leading a field trip, or just know of a good spot to visit, please contact the club and let us know.
