Welcome to the Quimper Geological Society (QGS)


Our speaking events are on Saturdays at 4 pm and are announced by member email, local print and electronic bulletin boards. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our sit-down lectures are cancelled indefinitely; instead the lectures are being presented via Zoom. Watch our schedule for updates and links to the lectures. In addition, we record these lectures for later viewing (see the Events > Recorded Events tab) on home page menu).

Our goal is to foster an understanding of Earth Science concepts by offering 5-6 illustrated lectures during the academic year and one or two summer field trips. We focus mainly, but not exclusively, on local and regional geologic features and issues (see yearly list under events). Membership and events are FREE and open to the public, although we gratefully accept donations to defray our expenses. QGS is an earth-science activity of the Jefferson Land Trust, which is located in Port Townsend, WA.  We are in our 10th year here on the Quimper Peninsula.
