Welcome to the Geological Society of Glasgow
The Geological Society of Glasgow was founded in 1858 – the year that Darwin and Wallace presented the idea of Natural Selection!
Existing members will be familiar with the website. For newcomers, I would recommend the Local Rocks section. Here our website team have assembled an excellent introduction to the geology of the Glasgow area, with its diverse mixture of rocks and geological history.
The society has a programme of monthly lectures, running from October to May, on topics by leading experts in their fields. We also run field excursions from April to September.
Please feel free to attend our meetings. You will be made most welcome and at the social session following the lecture you can talk to the lecturer and meet society members. Perhaps you will decide to join us in the society. We look forward to meeting you.
