The Connecticut Valley Mineral Club was founded in 1940, dedicated to the study, appreciation and preservation of rocks, minerals, fossils and all aspects of Earth Science. We pass on our love of minerals to people of all ages with a special focus on schools with lectures and hands on presentations to students. We recently began a new project with the Significant Massachusetts Minerals Case for Schools that features all the Massachusetts state earth symbols as well as other minerals that were important to the history of the State.
We meet on the first Wednesday of each month at 6:30 pm in the Springfield Science Museum, Tolman Wing at the Quadrangle in Springfield, MA. Our meetings include occasional mineral presentations, general club business, and a room full of people willing to help you enjoy mineral collecting.
In addition, we sponsor numerous field trips throughout the season, a yearly club picnic and our annual Mineral, Jewelry and Fossil Show.
