Message from your Webgirl:

2015 is showing great promise as the SRMGS Board is already planning some great rockhounding field trips and lapidary workshops for it's members. Monthly workshops involving fire agate carving and wire wrap play dates, provide great learning opportunities as well as friendship building for it's members.

We also have the mother of all rockhounding field trips planned for Feburary. A four day adventure to the Cady Mountains to learn hard rock mining from the experts of Hand to Mouth Mining. We will be visiting several prospecting locations for Jaspers, plumed agates, fire agate and opals just to name a few. This is something you don't want to miss.

Finally, we are updating several pages of our site to bring both members and the community more information and opportunities through our website. If you have not joined Pinterest, you are missing out. We have an account that is full of rock related projects, ideas and information.
See ya online!
Happy Rockin'
