Field trips may be scheduled throughout the year, including bus trips to local shows, museums, and special exhibits. Check the Announcements in the footer. The club’s Facebook group may have last minute updates.
The club relies upon volunteer “Wagonmasters” to schedule trips to collecting sites. Interested club members meet at a designated location and may carpool to the collection site. Some of these sites are open on an “appointment only” basis, so this is a fantastic resource for our members. Check the current conditions page to see the latest information available about specific collecting sites you want to visit. Submit any current conditions that you have to the webmaster via the club’s email address or at a meeting.
We also have information for Do It Yourself field trips so click that link. As an adjunct to the page on DIY field trips, below is a PDF copy of a presentation given at the February, 2024, meeting on “The Fossil Trail of Washington and Oregon”. The PDF version provides one slide per page with any speaker notes below the slide.
The Washington Mineral Council offers field trips. Go to the Mineral Council web site for the most current information.
