About Us

The Bay Area Metal Detecting Association (BAMDA) 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. The group was founded in 2022 by Laura Peters (GeekyBeach Metal Detecting) with the goal to meet other detectorists in the community, and to help others see the value of metal detecting. 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.
