About Us

The San Joaquin Valley Lapidary Society is located in Bakersfield, California. We are a group of rock hounds dedicated to the sharing of knowledge about the lapidary arts. We meet weekly for workshops in lapidary, silversmith, and wire wrapping/beading. We were founded in 2005, and are incorporated as a 501 (c) 3. Part of our focus is education, and offer a program for area elementary school 4th and 6th graders that supplements their geology studies.

SJVLS is participating in the Windwolf Spring Nature Festival. The 93,000 acre preserve is located on Maricopa Hwy, off of Highway 168. Dates are March 11, 12. We will have tables with educational displays of rock and information about us. Hope that all of our members and friends will visit the Preserve during this event. We will also be donating some rock specimens and identification signage to be permanently displayed at the Preserve If you have not visited the Preserve yet this is a wonderful time to go.

This is a wonderful place to hike, to photograph, and simply enjoy this piece of wilderness that has been dedicated to the public. See you there.
