About the Club
1.The AlberniValley Rock and Gem Club was established in
1958. Most of its first members were prospectors. From this small beginning we
have grown into a club that is interested in many facets of the earth sciences.
Each year we put on a free show to educate the people of the AlberniValley. Last Year almost 1600 passed through our
doors in the 2-day period of the show. Our education of the public does not
stop there. Every year we travel to the schools in our area and have
demonstration for the students. As you can see we are a very active club.
