Welcome to OGMS. Enjoy your visit.
The Ozarks Gem & Mineral Society, Inc was founded in 1957 by a group of people interested in the hobby and study of rocks and minerals. The purpose of the Society is: 1) to study and promote an interest in earth science, geology, paleontology, mineralogy, lapidary, and the jewelry-making art, 2) to conduct educational programs, and 3) to support youth activities and encourage youth interest in earth science and related areas.
We meet on the 4th Monday of each month (except December) at 6:30 pm at the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church. The church is located at 815 E. Farm Road 182, Springfield, Missouri. Park in the lot at the back of the church and enter on the lower level.
Meetings are open to the public and consist of a 45 minute presentation, 15 minute social break, and 30 minute business session.
