2017 CCGC Programs/Events
CCGC Meetings are the second Monday of each month (no meetings in July and August), at 6:00 PM (business meetings at 6:00 PM, Programs begin at 7:00 PM). Our venue is the Fellowship Hall of the Methodist Church, 9th and Main St., Cañon City, CO. Except as noted, our meetings are free and open to the public and we encourage visitors. Classes and field trips are open to members only and will be held at a variety of other locations and may include a fee.
At each membership meeting we have a fun silent auction where you can bid on special geology related items such as specimens of gems, minerals and rocks; books, tools, etc. If you have extra items you would like to donate, please bring them and we will add them to the auction. Proceeds go to CCGC's new scholarship fund.
