Community Out-reach

We participate in several community projects to promote our organization and to carry out our mission to educate the public in the lapidary arts.

We have programs designed to coordinate with the Los Angeles School District curricula for elementary grades on "Igneous, Sedimentary and Metamorphic Rocks" and "Fossils". These programs are brought to the schools by our club member volunteers who share their expertise with the children. We have hands-on exhibits for each of these programs where the children can experience examples discussed in the programs. To inquire or schedule a visit please email the club for specific presentation information.Club Showcase

 Our members share their work and interests by placing exhibits at several types of venues. We offer educational exhibits for our local public libraries and community events. Our society participates as an exhibitor at many local gem and mineral club shows. Links are below.

Our members participate at the Chatsworth Historical Society sponsored Pioneer Day held the first Sunday in October at the Homestead Acres in Chatsworth Park South. We bring lapidary equipment and demonstrators who share how we do our lapidary arts.
