Consider becoming an FMNJ member and joining our activities. Membership is open to all regardless of education or expertise.

Meetings

Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of every other month (i.e. in 2017: January, March, May, September (annual business meeting), and November) at 7:00 p.m. at Monmouth Worship Center, 37 Vanderburg Rd, Marlboro Township, NJ 07746. Meetings are open to all members. We plan field trips, swap minerals and listen to talks by mineral and fossil experts. There is always time to show specimens and get help identifying the difficult ones.
