Why Join?

The Central Pennsylvania Rock and Mineral Club is an active organization of rock and mineral enthusiasts which through field trips, programs, and activities, gives people of all ages, an opportunity to learn about and enjoy Rocks and Minerals. Whether you enjoy collecting rocks, collecting fossils, lapidary, polishing, flintknapping, learning different aspects of field (how to identify, micro-mounting, photography, history), etc. the Central Pennsylvania Rock and Mineral Club has something for you. Chances are that other people in the club share your interests and can share a tip or two. No amount of “googling” can replace the experiences the club shares at our program meetings, field trips and other various outings.
