Bay Area Metal Detecting Association


Our association is focused on sharing stories about metal detecting in the San Francisco Bay Area, advocating for additional support of metal detecting, and contributing to a cleaner environment for all. 

Our members help locals find their lost precious items, clean up metal debris and hazards from public beaches and parks, and contribute to a better understanding of our history.

If you’re a metal detectorist in the San Francisco Bay Area or you are just interested in learning more about the hobby, please join us for a meeting!

Our current meeting schedule

Virtual Zoom meetings on the second Monday of every month. Next Meeting: April 17, 2023 

(April 10 is Easter Monday, so it will be the third Monday of April)

* If a Monday falls on a holiday, it will be the third Monday of the month

If you are not yet a member, sign up to become a member, or if you want to attend a meeting first, sign up for a meeting on Eventbrite to get reminders for the next meeting.
