Accepting Donations

WAMS accepts donations of rocks and rock collections!  Do you have piles, buckets, or boxes of rocks? Agates, petrified wood,  thunder eggs, crystals, obsidian, fossils, jasper or rock cutting, polishing equipment and  supplies? Do you want to downsize? Maybe we can help!

Donations help support our mission of teaching Earth Sciences through public programs,  outreach, and youth education. We will also buy specimens, collections, and bulk quantities.
