2010/11 SCHEDULE




Click for Las Vegas, Nevada Forecast

Welcome! When people think of southern Nevada they usually think of Las Vegas with all of its bright lights and gambling. However, geologists view southern Nevada as a playground outfitted with a rock record spanning a large portion of Earth's history. With nearby Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, Lake Mead Recreation Area, Mount Charleston, Frenchman Mountain-Rainbow Gardens, and Valley of Fire (to name a few), southern Nevada has lots of outdoor activities to keep the geology enthusiast entertained for a lifetime.

As a chapter of the Geological Society of Nevada we have an active meeting schedule with topics of interest to many Nevadans. These meetings are usually held on the last thursday of the month with a social half-hour preceeding each meeting. Please note that meetings are open to anyone who wishes to attend! We also publish a monthly newsletter and organize field trips around the southern Nevada area. Take time to check our website using the links to the left and please join us for one of our meetings! And check back often for important updates to our meeting and field trip schedules and to view some of our chapter news!

If you are interested in becoming a member of our chapter please go to the main GSN website and download an application.

Visitors from all over the globe have visited our local website and now I've added a visitor map so everyone can get a feel for where our site visitors originate!
