Rockhounding is a great family activity and we enjoy helping youth explore this great hobby. There are many related hobbies as well. Some of those are jewelry making, scrimshaw (carving), cabochon making, wire wrapping and flint knapping just to name a few. You are welcome to attend a meeting at any time. Due to the liability involved you will need to be a member to attend field trips or some activities. This can be taken care of the day of the event if necessary.
