What we do:

Since 1942, we’ve met at the Smithsonian Institution to discuss all facets of earth sciences and hear  from experts in many related fields. We sponsor or join with other local clubs for field trips.

Our monthly newsletters offer diverse articles at all knowledge levels. We support mineral sciences by volunteering at the Smithsonian and elsewhere and by finding other ways to expand interest and knowledge.Want to know more about any of this?Email us at mineralclubdc at gmail dot com.
