These public lectures are held at the Geology Museum in the spring and/or fall and are sponsored by the generous support of the Friends of the Geology Museum. A small reception will follow each of these lectures. Although it is not required, prior registration for these events is suggested since Friends Meetings are on a first come first serve basis and can fill up pretty quickly. By registering prior to the event, you will be sure to have a spot and a more enjoyable experience. Please contact the museum staff if you have any questions about this event.
