Field trip to Agate Flats
The Riverton Mineral and Gem Society Inc. (RMGS) in Riverton, Wyoming, is an 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 the group hosts multiple outings each month in the summer to explore for specific gems or minerals in our state. There is a minimal fee for individual or family club membership, but there are no charges to go on club-led 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! Email club secretary Kim Brown at Kim@THININC.com.
