BAM meets at 7pm on the 2nd Wednesday of each month EXCEPT February (when many members travel to the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show) and July and August (summer vacation). In addition, we hold an annual picnic on a weekend in late August or September.

Monthly meetings typically last approximately 2-3 hours and include a presentation by a member or a guest speaker as well as show-and-tell relating to field adventures and recent mineralogical acquisitions. In addition, each meeting offers the opportunity to access the group's aggregate knowledge and get cooperative visual identification of unknown mineral specimens. At virtually every meeting, members -- and guests from the community -- take advantage of this unique opportunity, whether for a specimen obtained commercially, field collected or just a family heirloom.
