Field Trips

The club organizes many great field trips throughout the year to places such as Montana, South Dakota, Iowa, Thunder Bay, Michigan, and also places within Minnesota.  We collect agates, geodes, fossils, amethyst, petrified wood, dinosaur bones and other assorted mineral specimens. By all accounts, members have a great time and return with loads of treasures.
