Calling all Pebble Pups!

Guests are always welcome at our meetings! Our Pebble Pup meetings are designed for rockhounds under 18 years old and are held on the first Wednesday of the month (excluding holidays) at 6:00 PM – 6:45 PM.

These meetings feature fun, free, earth science activities for kids.

future rockhounds member badgeThe core group is between 4th – 8th grade but we also have activities for Pebble Pups that are younger or older.

The focus will be the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies Future Rockhounds of America program along with other activities, workshops and field trips.
The Number 1 goal of the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies Future Rockhounds of America program is to reach out to as many kids as possible to fan whatever budding interest they may have in rocks, fossils, and lapidary arts.

The program consists of an FRA Membership patch, 15 badges (Rocks & Minerals, Earth Resources, Fossils, Lapidary Arts, Collecting, Showmanship, Communication, Field Trips, Leadership, Earth Processes, Earth in Space, Gemstone Lore & Legend, Stone Age Tools & Art, Gold Panning & Prospecting, and Rocking on the Computer), and a “Rockhound Badge” for kids who earn 6 of the 15 badges.

Newcomers always welcome and never go home empty handed.  Bring your friends, brothers and sisters and have some fun.
