The Friends of the Geology Museum play a vital role in supporting the Geology Museum. Members of the organization are dedicated to preserving and enhancing the Geology Museum and help to maintain program vitality.
Join the Friends of the Geology Museum and Support Our Mission
The support of our members is essential to the Museum's ability to host the Friends of the Museum meetings and the Annual Open House, renovate the museum's exhibits and develop new educational programs. Friends of the Museum receive announcements for the annual Open House and other events, news from the Museum, discounts at the Gift Shop and Mineral Sale, priority field trip and tour scheduling, and more! Friends are additionally invited to special guest lectures by Rutgers faculty and leading scientists from around the country.
As the museum moves forward, we hope to increase the amount of programs and museum opportunities available to our members. The support of our members is very important to us and we sincerely hope you will decide to join us on this mission by becoming a member or renewing your current membership.
Memberships are valid from January 1st to December 31st in the year dues are paid. Memberships paid from November 1st to December 31st are valid for the following calendar year.
