Artisan Craft Fairs – 2018

Twice a year we have a wonderful event called the Artisan Craft Fair, featuring items sold by our members.  We have the fabulous "Wheel of Fortune" for the younger crowd, where everyone is a winner!  Our next fair is Mother's Day weekend (May 11 - 13, 2018) at the Reno Town  Mall! 
Please pass on this invitation to all your friends and come to our Fair.  We'll be selling unique jewelry and pendants, fossils, mineral specimens, faceted gems and cabochons, just to name a few of our items to keep or give as gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, Mother's Day, and all the gift-giving holidays.  Looking forward to seeing your smiling faces at our booths!
As always, free parking and no admission charge.

BLM Proposal–Close McDermitt Areas to Collecting to Protect Sage Grouse

Hello Reno Gem and Mineral Society, I am contacting you to let you know about a proposal from the BLM that is going to close millions of acres to protect the sage grouse. This affects Nevada. I've given you three links; Proposal Alert, Interactive Map and Written Concerns. The Proposal Alert link shows the alert notice. The map shows areas to be closed. For example, I looked closely and found that the McDermitt areas will be closed to both digging and off-highway driving. And lastly, the Written Concerns link shows how to voice your written concerns. The public has through March 30th to submit written concerns. Proposal Alert: http://freerangereport.com/index.php/2017/03/06/blm-idaho-management-plan-to-prohibit-hobby-rock-collecting/ Interactive Map: http://blm-egis.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=45b2d7896c36467aac3990b739d75a26 Written Concerns https://www.blm.gov/sites/blm.gov/files/Dear_Reader_Final.pdf Good luck, Mike Unruh
