Who we are!

We are a not for profit community of people involved in educating and sharing in many areas such as geology, rockhounding, mineral collection, lapidary and jewelry arts through a variety of club and community activities.


What we do!

Our monthly club meetings include guest speakers, demonstrations, silent auction along with rock and mineral identification. We sponsor classes in lapidary, jewelry making and a variety of field trips for gem, mineral, and fossil collecting.

Our annual rock and mineral show, held at the Canby Fairgrounds in October, offers a wide variety of learning opportunities including the preparation of the rock and mineral materials that will be for sale, and displays of our members’ skills. 


You are invited!

We welcome you to an exciting hobby for all ages! Attend a meeting, a field trip, our rock show, classes and more. Each monthly club meeting includes a presentation or demonstration, silent auction and all visitors receive a free collector’s specimen.
