The purpose of our club is to create an interest in the study of the earth sciences and all lapidary arts. We also offer the opportunity to share knowledge and working techniques with others. General Club Meeting Times Meetings are on the first Monday of each month at 7:00 pm at the Gorman Nature Center located at 2295 Lexington Ave., Mansfield, OH 44904. If the first Monday falls on a holiday we meet the next Monday (1 week after). Special Interest Group We have an interest group that meets on the second Monday of certain months. Workshops may be about Lapidary, Metalcraft and other interests if there is a demand. Limited available seats and will usually have a very small fee to attend. We also have a tool workshop where members may use the club’s machinery. Field Trips There are rock hunting field trips planned throughout the year to various locations across the country. Just to name a couple of places the club has gone to are, Duff Quarry in Huntsville, OH and herkimer digs in New York.
