Field Trips

MGMS organizes approximately seven field trips each year from March through September for members only. (Field trips are suspended during hunting season for safety reasons.)

11.27.10GRR 006Members may also participate in special regional field trips sponsored by other clubs because of the Mississippi Gem and Mineral Society’s affiliation with the Southeast Federation of Mineralogical Societies (SFMS) Dixie Mineral Council (DMC) Field Trip Program.

Field trip information is published in the MGMS newsletter.

All trips are arranged with the permission of the landowner for a specific date and time. Members are NOT authorized to return to these sites or collect on any private property without the express permission of the landowner.
