All About



The Geology Club is an active organization composed of people of many interests and capabilities — teachers, retirees, geologists, hobbyists and others. It was organized in January 1962 at the request of interested people in the community seeking knowledge and direction in geology and related subjects. Anyone interested in rocks, minerals, fossils, lapidary or other phases of Earth Science is welcome to apply for membership.

Membership

 

Requirements for membership include an interest in learning and sharing. Annual dues provide partial support for the club's activities. Individual dues are $15.00. Additional members of the family may join at a reduced rate of $10.00.

 

Community

 

Some of the services provided for the museum and the community have included periodic rock, gem, and mineral shows; specimen identification; artifact ID and illustrated programs in and out of the Museum; and a small reference library for the Museum. Club members frequently are donors to the geology collections of the Museum and also often speak to school classes. Each year the club contributes to a scholarship for a college student in the geology field.

 

Affiliations

 

The Geology Club is affiliated with the Midwest Federation of Mineralogical and Geological Societies and the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies.
