UMass Sesquicentennial

Massachusetts now has a Geological Society!

We are very pleased to announce the formation of the Massachusetts Geological Society: a grassroots effort by multiple geologists in the Commonwealth to create a place where folks can come together and talk about, and see, all of the great geology Massachusetts has to offer.

We urge everyone with a passion for geology, or even just an interest, to join and become a member. Membership forms, a schedule of upcoming events, etc... can be found at

The first meeting of the society will be Thursday, June 4th, at AECOM in Chelmsford. Registration forms are at
