The Riverton Mineral and Gem Society Inc. (RMGS) in Riverton, Wyoming, is a non-profit organization of people of all ages and experience levels who share a love of minerals and rockhounding. The club holds monthly educational meetings during the winter months and hosts multiple outings each month in the summer to explore Wyoming for specific minerals.
There is a minimal fee for annual individual or family club membership, but there are no charges to go on club-led outings. You do not have to be a resident of Wyoming to join the RMGS.
YOU MUST BE A MEMBER TO GO ON CLUB OUTINGS!
Some trips will have additional expenses if there are fees associated with a location (such as finding fish fossils in a private quarry in Kemmerer, Wyoming). The club hosts an annual silent auction fundraiser in February of each year to help defray costs of meeting space rental, and RMGS holds an annual club Christmas party in December.
We invite you to come to a meeting or a field trip and experience the thrill of finding your own mineral treasures!
The RMGS Facebook page is the best place to keep up with what is going on with our club on a day-to-day basis.
At this time our club has suspended in-person monthly meetings. We are working to improve our website with educational offerings and welcome member participation!
In the spring, summer, and fall the RMGS sponsors field trips for members to various spots in Wyoming. Check out the Calendar page for more information.
Our club has an annual silent auction of rock-and-mineral-related items (plus other goodies) to raise funds to pay for our meeting space. Stay tuned for 2021 silent auction updates.
The RMGS is always looking for new folks to lead field trips. If you would like to volunteer, please contact 2021 Field Trip Coordinator Ted Knowles at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stan Grove, president; no VP at this time; Holly Skinner, secretary; Al Zenlenak, treasurer; Ted Knowles, Field Trip Coordinator.
