About the Society
The Cleveland Geological Society was founded in 1957. Membership is open to people interested in all aspects of geology. Monthly meetings feature talks on diverse topics, such as the geology of far-flung places, explanations of local points of interest and paleontology. Members and visiting geologists are invited to speak. The society also holds field trips to local sites and occasionally more distant locales.
The Cleveland Geological Society helps support a number of Museum programs. Among these are the summer Kirtlandia Research Internship Program and Archaeology & Earth Science Day in October.
Meetings are held the third Wednesday of the month from September through May at 7:30 pm in Classroom A on the lower level of the Museum, unless otherwise noted. Guests are welcome. Anyone may bring fossil, mineral and/or rock specimens to meetings for identification. Meeting attendees can earn 1 hour of Naturalist Certificate credit if the attendee is enrolled in the Naturalist Certificate Program. If the Museum is closed due to bad weather or other circumstances, any Cleveland Geological Society meetings and all other events are canceled for that day.
