About the Jefferson Land Trust’s Quimper Geological Society

We seek to foster an understanding of geologic concepts in our community by offering 4-5 illustrated lectures during the year and two summer field trips. We focus mainly, but not exclusively, on local and regional geologic features and issues. All talks are free and open to the public, although we gratefully accept donations to defray our expenses.

Our speaking events are usually on Saturdays at 4 pm and the location of each event is noted on this website (see upcoming events listed below) and through our emails. Programs are generally announced in local print and electronic bulletin boards, too.

CLICK HERE TO JOIN OUR EMAIL NEWS LIST. You will join more than 750 others who receive email notifications of our upcoming events. We do not share your information with anyone beyond the Jefferson Land Trust and will send only geology-related information. You can always unsubscribe if you wish.
