The club meets monthly, virtually or in person, for mineral presentations, discussing club business, socializing, and a mineral specimen raffle.
The club sponsors a dozen or more field trips every year for members to field collect mineral specimens.
Traditionally, the club sponsors an annual live auction of mineral specimens and mineral-related materials. In addition, the club may sponsor small online auctions periodically, especially when public health emergencies prevent meeting in person.
This annual event gives club members the chance to buy, sell, and trade anything mineral related.
Every year, the club sponsors a mineral specimen competition, in which members can compete in over a dozen categories to see who has the best specimens. Different categories allow for entries that are self-collected, purchased, or both, and a separate group display category awards creativity and mineral knowledge.
The club meets annually during the winter holiday season to celebrate, socialize, and enjoy mineral-related activities while sharing a meal together.
The club may sponsor other events or participate in events sponsored by Harvard or other area institutions.
