This group is all about minerals, how to identify them, geology and the locations they can be found. Topics are decided on by the group leader and the members. The group meets every second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm, at the Clubhouse with current club members. Charles Creekmur leads the group. If you are interested in learning more about minerals, get your name on the email list for this group by contacting Charles Creekmur - firstname.lastname@example.org. Click here for meeting Calendar.
