Our members approach geology from a wide variety of interests. Sharing knowledge with other members is the key to us all gaining a better understanding of the Earth and its environments whilst enjoying the company of others with a similar interest. Membership of the Geology Group involves: reading up on areas of interest (none of us are experts!), discussion of relevant news stories and selected subjects, plus occasional visits to geologically interesting locations or geological collections.
Group Conveners : Heather, with Jon Raper

The Group meets at the Hornsey Vale Community Centre fortnightly on Mondays, 10 – 11.30 a.m.
