Welcome to ECRDA.org!

The East Coast Research and Discovery Association (ECRDA) is the Northeast's largest treasure-hunting club. Since 1983, the ECRDA has promoted the hobby of treasure hunting among adults and children. Many members and hobbyists use a metal detector, but it can be as easy as checking the coins in your pocket -- or eyeballing a 'find' just lying on the ground.


Whether you're a novice, a long time coin-shooter, or a dedicated relic hunter, the ECRDA is the club to be in. Our monthly meetings bring existing and new members together to show off their latest finds, swap tips, hear educational speakers, enjoy our shared hobby, make new friends, buy & sell gear, and much more.


Our next regular club meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 21, 2019. As always, we'll have Finds of the Month, refreshments, perhaps a presentation or a speaker, and more. All are welcome!
