Wagonmasters' Fieldtrips

More Field Trips to be posted

Please check back after April 2017. Thank you.


 

 

 

ALWAYS CALL THE TRIP LEADER THE DAY BEFORE TO ENSURE THE TRIP IS GOING, AND THAT THERE HAVE BEEN NO OTHER CHANGES

For all of the above trips, all club members are welcome, including our rockhound friends from the US!

If you are not yet a member, please join one of the clubs listed under Club Directory. Club members can host a guest under their membership & insurance coverage.

Remember to wear layered clothing to be able to adjust to weather conditions at the location, bring a lunch and water on all field trips.

Ensure your vehicle has a full tank of gas.

As always, any US rockhounds in good standing with their clubs are invited to join our field trips!

Washington State Mineral Council offers some great trips, just across the border: Washington State Mineral Council
