Additional Info:

A group of active field collectors in western New York (minerals and fossils) who enjoy getting together to share their interest. Group meetings second Friday of the month in Newark. NY, one Saturday a month at a club workshop, and as often as possible in the field.

Founded in 1973 by Robert Walker of Marion, NY and Marion Wheaton of East Williamson, NY, the club has brought many fun filled years to the local “rock hounds” and mineral buffs alike. The Club’s first meeting was held on February 6, 1973 at the Marion High School where Robert was a Student. Robert “Bob” and several other local mineral and gem enthusiasts had been traveling 40+ miles each way to attend the only area club which was in Hannibal, NY and it was decided that “someone” should start a local club. Bob and Marion were asked if they would be willing to do so, and that first meeting drew in about 30 people!
