Other Geological Societies :
Warwickshire Geological Conservation Group (WGCG)was established in 1990
This was by few enthusiasts who wanted to raise awareness of and conserve the many rock exposures dotted around the county. The membership has since grown and includes many enthusiastic amateurs, students and teachers as well as some professional geologists.

Bedfordshire Geology Group was formed in 2004 by a group of enthusiastic amateur and professional geologists.

Cambridgeshire Geology Club 

The Cambridgeshire Geology Club was formed in November 1984 and was created at the time to replace the “Geological Section” of the University of Cambridge, Natural History Society which ceased to exist about this time. The Club is open to all grades of interest in geology.

Since 1984 the Club has grown considerably and welcomes professional and amateur geologists alike and caters for all ages, everyone is welcome to join.

Friends of Sedgwick 

The Friends of the Sedgwick has just celebrated its Tenth Birthday having been founded in 2000. It is a charitable organisation with the dual aim of providing support to the Museum and extending access to geology to the wider public.

The Friends organise a series of lectures and workshops through the Autumn and Winter months with outings and trips in Spring and early Summer. In March, around the time of Sedgwick’s Birthday, we have our annual dinner in a Cambridge College and at Christmas we organise a party in the Museum itself.

Geologists’ Association 

Since its formation in 1858, the GA has actively promoted the study of geology to all who are interested in the past, present and future of the natural world. It is a friendly and inclusive organisation and welcomes everyone, regardless of the level of their knowledge.

The Geology Society

The Geological Society of London was founded in 1807.  It is the UK national society for geoscience, and the oldest geological society in the world.

The Society provides a wide range of professional and scientific support to over 10,000 Fellows (members), about 2000 of whom live overseas.  More than 2000 Fellows are also Chartered Geologists.

As well as boasting one of the most important geological libraries in the world, the Geological Society is a global leader in Earth science publishing, and is renowned for its cutting edge science meetings.  It is a vital forum in which Earth scientists from a broad spectrum of disciplines and environments can exchange ideas, and is an important communicator of geoscience to government, media, those in education and the broader public.
