Currently, the three Ventura County Gem and Mineral Societies are working together to build and collect rocks for over 300 “Earth Science Education Kits”. These kits are being distributed to Ventura County Public Schools and the Ventura County Library.  The Rock Boxes will be used by county educators to teach and get students interested in Earth Science.

We are located in the City of Oxnard, Ventura County, California.  The Oxnard Gem & Mineral Society is a non-profit organization under
