SCMGS has been an all-volunteer organization active in Santa Cruz since 1949. Our mission is to promote earth sciences education and lapidary arts. The club raises money for its lapidary shop at the Market Street Senior Center, for its annual show, for field trips and club activities, and for scholarships awarded to deserving students in Earth Sciences at Cabrillo and UCSC.
