The Weis ‘N’ Miners Geology Club is sponsored by the Weis Museum. The club is for everyone interested in minerals, fossils, lapidary and jewelry-making, geology, archaeology, gems, metaphysics and mining. Everyone is welcome – singles, couples, families, all ages and levels of knowledge. First organized in 2007, the Weis ‘N’ Miners Club has already become the largest geology club in Wisconsin!
