We encourage members to attend club activities, make use of our shop facilities, learn earth science and crafting skills from books in our library, and volunteer to help with the work of running the club. The largest amount of help is always needed to plan and run our annual Fiesta of Gems show, but there are also a multitude of tasks where your help would be much appreciated.


Current members who want to renew their membership by mail can download the Membership Application form and mail it with their check.
