The society is for anyone interested in geology, 
whether beginners or experienced.

This is our 40th year!

We hold monthly talks on a wide range of earth science topics. We have several day and weekend field trips a year and usually a longer foreign excursion.  In August we have an annual 'soiree' when slides and specimens collected during the year are shown.

Visitors are always welcome (small fee).
