With all the uncertainty over the last few years, many of our programs have been converted into a virtual format. Check out our current list of programs and events below!

   

"Ask A Geologist" Web Series

Join us on certain Thursday evenings for these online sessions, where we hope to engage children and answer their questions! During each event, our geologist will first introduce the day's geologic topic and then answer your questions about it! Events are primarily aimed at elementary and middle school-aged children, but all ages are welcome to join and learn something new!

Visit the "Ask A Geologist" Webpage for a schedule of upcoming events.
