This meeting should be of interest to all rockhounds and to anyone who recreates on and uses public lands. The purpose of this meeting is for outreach to rockhounds and the public at Quartzsite;  to let them know about ALAA and what we do.   It is to let rockhounds and the public know the legislative and regulatory challenges and issues facing all of us and how they can and should be involved.
