The Mt. Hood Rock Club (501-3C non-profit) was founded in 1952 for the purpose of bringing together those that have an interest in the collection and identification of rocks, gems, minerals, petrified wood and fossils. Many of our rockhounds also have the lapidary skill required to cut, grind and polish these materials into beautiful display pieces or jewelry. The club includes junior members that learn an interesting and educational hobby. More than 160 members make up the club. We are a member of the Oregon Council and Northwest Federation of Mineralogical Societies.
