The Club offers rock and mineral collection fieldtrips and other related activities for its members. We try to schedule them for the Saturday after our monthly Friday night meeting. Most are day trips in the vicinity of Flagstaff, although we’ve been known to do overnight adventures. We discuss the details in the regular Friday meeting before the trip and include the information on this website in the events section.
Provisions needed for our field trips usually include water, snacks, buckets, rock hammer and shovel. Our field trips are fun and informative, and you will likely take away lots of cool and possibly unique rocks, minerals, or fossils specimens for your personal collection. Depending on the destination, we meet at an agreed location and time to caravan. All club members agree to abide by the AFMS Code of Ethics.

- Gray Mountain and Joseph City for petrified wood
