The society is for anyone interested in geology,
whether beginners or experienced.
This is our 42nd year!
We hold monthly talks on a
wide range of earth science topics. We have several day and weekend field
trips a year and sometimes a longer foreign excursion. In summer we have
an annual Event, which in 2016 will take the form of a talk, picnic and
walk in the Ver Valley..
Visitors are always welcome (small fee).
