Educational Rock Talks
Members of our Club visit schools, youth groups, and clubs during the year to give presentations . Our goal is to promote interest in lapidary and earth science, as well as the study and preservation of nature.
We are deeply saddened to share that
Marshall Havner passed away February 20, 2017,
He was doing what he loved to do, camping in the desert with friends. He was a master of rock talks and we miss him very much.
You may contact Debbie at 559-972-1705 to schedule a Rock Talk.
We take a variety of field trips throughout the year. Some are for a few hours and others are overnight camping. We may be looking for Thulite, Rose Quartz, Jade, Soapstone, Jasper, Benitoite, Palm Root, the list goes on and on!
