Overview: The current Orange County Mineral Society has membership ranging from youngsters to senior citizens. All club members are encouraged to participate in all phases of club activities.
The children especially like the field trips, and gain extensive knowledge from attending meetings and participating in the club activities. Each club meeting brings us new knowledge by the education provided by our guest speakers and by hands on experience for both young and old.
Participation includes maintenance of the mineral displays for the County of Orange in the Natural History building in Museum Village, Monroe NY. Members may contribute articles for the monthly newsletter “Shale Mail”, and can cover any aspect of the earth sciences. We share knowledge and have available respected, knowledgeable individuals in our Mineral Group.
