Oxford Geology Group

Oxfordshire's geological society for over sixty years

Welcome to our world...

Founded in 1957 and incorporated in 2017, we're the county geological society for Oxfordshire. Our educational activities promote geology, the Earth sciences and the public appreciation of Oxfordshire's landscape and geodiversity.

We're one of the most active and dynamic geological societies in the country.  We try to share our passion for the geosciences with others through our outreach programme.  Much of our programme of activities is open to non-members.

 

Oxford Geology Group is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation [CIO] registered with The Charity Commission in England & Wales and is recognised by Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs as a tax exempt charity.
