Meetings

We hold Informative monthly meetings.  Our meetings are held in the comfort of the Donald Wright Auditorium of the Pasadena Central Library, 285 E. Walnut Street, Pasadena, California.  Comfortable seating, lighting, a stage and audio-visual system allows us to attract quality speakers, provide demonstrations and interesting videos for our members!

Meetings are the third Tuesday of the month.  Members and guests arrive between 6PM and 6:30PM for refreshments and information exchange.  A display table at the back of the room allows our Education Committee and society members to display creations, finds, and the birthstone of the month.  It is also a place for members and guests to have unknown minerals identified.

Our meetings begin at 6:45PM and end promptly at 9PM.  They include a business session and a program on a subject relating to our earth science hobby.  Refreshments are served at a break between the sessions.  The program may include demonstrations, slide shows, videos, auctions, show & sell, or lectures on various subjects.

Past programs have included How to Display your Show Case, Petrified Wood, Field Trip First Aid, Mount St. Helens, Rhodochrosite Mining, Thunder Eggs, Larimar, Micro Crystals, Chinese Farmed Pearls, Rock Carving Throughout History, Cultured Rubies, Pink Minerals, Mineral Classification and Identification, Camping Basics and more!
