Grab Bag

Grab bags -- those little bags filled with rocks, fossil, and minerals -- fun for kids and fun for adults!

Some members donate cloth, time, and their sewing skills to make the bags.

Other members collect goodies all year during field trips as well as their own collecting adventures and donate them to be used in these educational little bags.

Then, once a year, we get together to stuff those bags!

So help make kids (and adults!) happy by making bags, providing goodies for the bags, or filling the bags!

If you have any questions about grab bags, please send email to

Time: 11:00 am
Location: GMS Building

Mark the date April 28 around 11AM. This is when we have the chance to fill our grab bags for the show. Plus we all get to have pizza and socialize together when we're done!

Now I will request once more this year that we get more bags made, and I would love to take some rocks off your hands. MOSTLY, several people have made bags and donations of rocks are coming in. Thank you to everyone who gave of your time, talents, and treasures.
