Geology Club

The Weis'n'Miners Geology Club is sponsored by the Weis Museum. The club is for everyone interested in minerals, fossils, lapidary & jewelry-making, geology, archaeology, gems, metaphysics, and mining.

Everyone is welcome--singles, couples, families, young & old--and all levels of knowledge. First organized in 2007, the Weis'n'Miners Club has already become the largest geology club in Wisconsin!
