President's Message

Welcome to our website. As the President of the Reno Gem and Mineral Society, Inc., I am proud of our growth the last 3 years. We are expanding our building, new classrooms, new equipment, and opportunities. Our Mission statement is above. Our goal is to advance the education in geology and earth sciences and we offer a children’s program on one Saturday a month where they can learn and earn badges. We love to share finds with new members, where to go, and what to do with those finds. You need only have an interest in rocks, not be an expert or a geologist. Join us on the first Wednesday of each month at Baldini’s upstairs at 7PM.

What We Offer

The Reno Gem & Mineral Society, Inc.'s objective is sharing of enjoyment and education of all earth science related activities.
