Welcome to the Geological Society of
We are a group of geologists, professional geologists and people interested in geology. Our purpose is to advance the science of geology and the geologic sciences as a profession in New Hampshire. We publish four newsletters a year and host three dinner meetings with interesting speakers and a field trip each year. Check out our newsletter on the Publications page and click on Meetings and Events for our next gathering. If you are a teacher, click on the Outreach Activities button on the left for resources that we offer educators. We maintain a list of available opportunities for continuing education on the Continuing Education page. We also publish Job Listings as they come our way. We always welcome new members.

subject areas. Attend sessions interesting to you; take advantage of
special displays, free samples, and discounts on educational materials; and
network with fellow teachers and Earth Science professionals.
As a bonus, if you are teaching science in
NH, you may get some of your
