Beginning in 2010, Daisy Mountain Rock & Mineral Club was organized as a non-profit corporation to further the interest and educate the public in the many geological features of the terrain located in the mid-deserts located around Phoenix, Arizona.

Our founders,  geologists and educators Herb Jacobson, Robert Salter, Keith Martin and Jay Yett were joined by "rock-hounds" Dan Janko, Edward Winbourne and Joan Jamtass in 2009 to create a non-profit corporation dedicated to sharing their knowledge and experience in geological formations.
