Abstract: 

The Geological Society of Minnesota (GSM) is a public-spirited, nonprofit organization that has been in operation since 1938. Our ongoing mission has been to promote public interest and supply educational support in the geological sciences.

We do this by:

  • sponsoring free seminars and labs at the University of Minnesota
  • conducting statewide and national field trips
  • providing geology presentations for schools and organizations
  • providing staffed geology exhibits for science fairs
  • maintaining a circulating Earth-science media library
  • publishing relevant information for public distribution
  • maintaining and expanding upon a series of geological plaques located throughout Minnesota
  • Membership in GSM is open to anyone who has an interest in geology or other Earth sciences. Annual membership fees are kept very inexpensive with rates as low as $10 for full time students and $20 for individuals. Since science is important to everyone, we try to keep the cost of participation in our activities as low as possible.

    For more information, check out our web site: http://www.gsmn.org or call GSM at (612) 724-2101.
