CMS Aug 11th 2019 Picnic at Lake Wilderness

Aug 11th 2019 – Sunday – is our summer picnic.  This is a great time to pick up some good deals at our auction, as well as a fun time to socialize with members.  I like to show this in the fieldtrip schedule so that you get it on your calendar.

Note: I had to take Salmon Creek off of our schedule because I heard it had been closed to rockhounding as of last winter. .
