The Everett Rock and Gem Club is a very active club when it comes to field trips. We have an excellent field trip coordinator and many members who plan trips on their own. Most of our field trips are for members of our rock club or other NFMS rock clubs, therefore we do not list details on this webpage. If you are interested in field trips, we encourage you to join your local rock club. Below you will see some of the field trips that we have sponsored. Not all trips are listed.
Saddle Mountain Petrified Wood - May 21, 2016
Glacial Erratic - May 28, 2016
Stubb's Hill / Cedar Ponds Field Trip - February 28, 2015
Another great field trip! We dug in the main pit area, near the road, and in a new location. Red jasper and dark jasper with red and yellow streaks was found in the main pit (I got 30 pounds, some of it is shown below). In the new area the jasper was red/orange.
Blanchard Hill Field Trip - January 24, 2015
We had a great time on our field trip to Mt. Blanchard. Nine adults and three juniors joined in the search for Stilpnomelane and Green Chert using hammers, chisels, and pry bars. Soapstone was found on the east edge of the Stilpnomelane outcrop. Lots of Chatoyant Soapstone was found about 100 yards away along a creek.
Stubb's Hill Field Trip - August 8, 2014
The club hosted a field trip for an American Heritage Girl Troop from Everett on Aug. 8th. The girls found specimens of fossilized leaves, opal, and jasper, which helped them with their requirements for the Geology Merit Badge. On the way back, they visited a stream that runs through the remains of a collapsed lava tube.
