About

“We love mineralogy, geology, rockhounding, paleontology, lapidary arts — anything related to rocks! We are dedicated to learning, exploring, sharing, and educating others so they can enjoy earth science as much as we do.”

Club Meetings

We meet the first Thursday of each month. We enjoy an educational presentation by a guest speaker and sharing finds with fellow rockhounds.

Field Trips

We go on several single day and multi-day field trips each year — surface hunting or digging.

Rock Shows

Our annual rock show is the first weekend in May. There are other rock shows in Montana and Wyoming too!
