Welcome to the Geological Society of Glasgow
I am pleased to welcome you to the website for the Geological Society of Glasgow. The society was founded in 1858 and, with around 400 members, is still going strong! We enjoy monthly lecture meetings from October to May on a wide variety of topics by leading experts in their fields. We also run a variety of field excursions through the ‘summer’ months (April to September), involving day trips and longer (residential) excursions. Members also enjoy a subscription to the Scottish Journal of Geology.
We are proud of our society and I hope you enjoy exploring our website. Please come along to our meetings: you will be sure to receive a warm welcome. I look forward to meeting you.
