Bedfordshire Geology Group was formed in 2004 by a group of enthusiastic amateur and professional geologists.
Our aims are:
- To encourage an understanding of the geology and geomorphology of the county
- To raise public awareness by promoting Local Geological Sites and organising walks and educational events
- To develop a sustainable organisation through an active network of skilled volunteers
Members enjoy field trips, clearing overgrown sites, lectures, workshops and social events - all aimed at getting ‘hands on’ with local rocks and fossils. We also arrange guided walks in order to appreciate the varied landforms and scenery of Bedfordshire.
We work closely with local companies, museums and country parks. We also collaborate with The Wildlife Trust, The Greensand Trust, Natural England and English Heritage on different projects.
Educational support for schools is arranged by request. This may involve classroom-based sessions that introduce pupils to exciting geological topics such as dinosaurs and volcanoes, or outdoor visits to examine rocks or landforms.
