How to Join

If you would like to join, come to our next meeting. Visitors are ALWAYS welcome at meetings, and so are children. Meetings are at 11:00 am on the third Saturday every month (except December) in various places. The meetings usually last 60-90 minutes, depending on how talkative people feel that day. Feel free to bring a specimen to identify or discuss. When you join, dues are $10 per year for a family or $5 per year for an individual membership.

small meeting room kansas city public library

This is the Small Meeting Room in the Kansas City Public Library, where we used to meet until the club became too large for the room.


  1. Hello,
    I’m new to geodes but am fascinated by their beauty! I became interested after seeing them at Union Station. Are newbies welcome at the meetings?


  2. I’m just curious, is there a specific age range? I don’t want to feel uncomfortable because I’m a lot older or younger than most people there. Not that I would really mind too much if that were the case!


    1. Yes we are still active. We usually meet the third Saturday each month at 11:00 am. The meeting site is currently at the Waldo Library. However, we have a Christmas get together in December and that will be on Saturday Dec. 14th. The next meeting will be at the Waldo Library. You may also see our facebook page under Show-Me Rockhounds, as I have not done an update on the website but intend to this week. Joining fee is still $5.00 per person.
