Quimper Geological Society (QGS)

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. Membership and events are FREE and open to the public, although we gratefully accept donations to defray our expenses. The QGS is an earth-science outreach of the Jefferson Land Trust, which is located in Port Townsend, WA.  We are in our 9th year here on the Quimper Peninsula.

Our speaking events are usually on Saturdays at 4 pm (see upcoming events listed below) and through our emails. Programs are generally announced in local print and electronic bulletin boards, too. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our sit-down lectures are cancelled; the lectures are being presented via Zoom. Watch our schedule (below) for updates and links to the lectures.  In addition, we are recording these lectures for later viewing: check the listings under the Events tab on our home page menu.
