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.
An unrivalled, wide-ranging package of events and activities
OGG delivers a super programme of affordable events and activities throughout the year - open to all. We organise conferences, lectures, field trips, guided walks, training and educational workshops.
Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
We had planned to launch a season of georambles this Autumn, with two walks a month. The introduction of the Rule of Six has potentially disrupted our plans. We believe that geo rambles should be exempt under the current guidance: organised ‘outdoor physical activity events’, organised rambles and walking for health group walks are exempt from the restrictions on social gatherings, known as the ‘rule of six’ in England.
We are in communication with Public Health England to see if
we can arrive at an agreed, safe and legal solution.
We are aiming for our lecture programme to move online for the time being. It is expected that our first online lecture will take place in October.
It's easy to join Oxford Geology Group
Although you don't have to join OGG to enjoy most of our activities (it is cheaper to participate for OGG members) we would love for you take membership. Membership has its benefits and we would be happy to talk to you about this.
