Welcome to WAMSI

WE LOVE ROCKS! WAMS is one of the largest rock and gem clubs in the Northwest. Our members are interested in all aspects of rockhounding – from collecting agates and fossils to working the rocks and gems into specimens and jewelry to enjoy for years. WAMSI meets the first first Thursday of each month at 7:00pm at the Salem Center 50+ (2615 Portland Rd NE, Salem). Visitors always welcome!
