Auction Our June meeting is our annual fund raising auction held at Northampton Community College, Tannersville. Mineral and fossil specimens donated by club members are auctioned at very nominal prices.

Field Trips One of the benefits of club membership is the ability to join us on our collecting field trips. We make several trips a year to active quarries and other collecting spots. Our parent federations supply liability insurance - a requirement at almost all collecting locations - for club members. Membership is $15 for individuals and $5 for each additional household family member.
