Additional Info:

Founded in 1991, the MGS has been a club enjoyed by both amateur and professional fossil and mineral collectors. MGS emphasizes collecting, identification, study, and display aspects of the geological sciences. MGS is a nonprofit organization affiliated with the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies (AFMS) and the Eastern Federation of Mineralogical and Lapidary Societies (EFMLS).

On Sunday, May 22nd, the MGS held its first in-person meeting since the end of 2019. This joint meeting with the American Fossil Federation was held at the outdoor picnic pavilion of the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory located outside of Laurel, MD. Plenty of specimens were on display including those from the late Mel Hurd’s collection and Riker mounts of Muddy Creek fossils donated to the MGS by Mike Folmer. No decision was made about the July meeting but the plan is to hold the September meeting with the annual auction.
