Mt. Hood Rock Club is a registered 501c3 educational non-profit and was founded in 1952 for the purpose of bringing together those that have an interest in the collection and identification of rocks, gems, minerals, petrified wood and fossils. Many of our rockhounds also have the lapidary skills required to cut, grind, and polish these materials into beautiful display pieces or jewelry. More than 350 members make up the club. We are a member of the Oregon Council of Rock and Mineral Clubs and Northwest Federation of Mineralogical Societies. We operate a members-only lapidary shop, a large annual rock show, a very active field trip program, and much more.
Our club holds regular meetings on the 2nd Tuesday and 4th Monday of each month at 7:00PM. Meetings are held in the basement of the Gresham United Methodist Church at 620 NW 8th St, Gresham. We are also currently still offering hybrid attendance on zoom. If you’d like to join the club, please attend a meeting in person to register, arrive by 6:45pm and bring cash or card for dues. Find more info on our “how to join” page. Guests and prospective members are always welcome. Our 2nd Tuesday meetings are our monthly business meetings where we discuss and vote on club matters, while our 4th Monday meetings are our social meetings where we have a presentation, demonstration, or some other activity. Every meeting also includes member rock sharing to display and speak about our latest finds or lapidary pieces, as well as time for socializing. We look forward to seeing you!
