We are a non-profit hobby organization founded on March 31, 1983 interested in all aspects of the Earth Sciences and Arts. This includes geology, mineral identification and collecting, paleontology, fossil identification and collecting, archaeological stone-age work, field trips related to these things, lapidary shaping and faceting of display and gemstone quality items, tumble polishing, jewelry settings, metal forming, and more. Located in Lethbridge Alberta at 3620-9th Ave N.
Our SARHA Studio is a ground level facility that contains workspace, tables and a variety of rock cutting, grinding and polishing machines.
General membership gives you access to our club activities including quarterly meetings, presentations, socials, classes, field trips, committees, SARHA library, and drop-in sessions. Membership in the Southern Alberta Rock Hounds Association automatically gives you membership in and access to events held by member clubs of the Alberta Federation of Rock Clubs and Gem and Mineral Federation of Canada.
For General Members, the studio and equipment can also be used for $5 per hour during open sessions. Drop-in sessions are generally held throughout the week. Check the calendar on the side before you come.
