The society encourages the study of Georgia geology in a variety of ways including the presentation of awards for the best grade school and high school student presentations in geology at the Georgia Science and Engineering Fair and the best graduate and undergraduate presentations in the Earth Science Division of the Georgia Academy of Science. The Annual Meeting and Fieldtrip, typically held on Columbus Day weekend of each year, brings together a wide range of geologists and geology enthusiasts for the study and debate of important geological problems in the state...and we have a good time doing it.
