Friends of Earth and Space

The newly launched Friends of Earth Space is comprised of like-minded people who have a special interest in learning about rocks, minerals and gems from our planet as well as meteorites, which are samples from our solar system.

To Promote learning about Earth and Space, we:

  • assist with the bimonthly Meteorite, Rock, Fossil, Gem and Mineral ID clinics
  • sponsor ROM Daytime talks and assist with gallery walk-throughs
  • co-organize and facilitate visits by various interest groups
  • Publish Newsletters bi-annually with submissions by FES volunteers and Earth and Space staff
  • assist with organized gallery activities during RFTH, March Break and Fun Sundays

Through donations and fundraising, we:

  • support projects, research and acquisitions, as identified by the Curator and staff of the Earth and Space section.

Our fundraising events have included:

  • Run for the ROM campaign

New Friends are welcome
