The Geologists’ Association

Since its formation in 1858, the GA has actively promoted the study of geology to all who are interested in the past, present and future of the natural world. It is a friendly and inclusive organisation and welcomes everyone, regardless of the level of their knowledge.

Welcome to Rockwatch, the UK’s nationwide club for young geologists. It is the junior club of the Geologists’ Association – the UK-based Society for amateur and professional geologists and earth scientists.

Rockwatch is the club for children and young people who are interested in things geological – rocks, fossils, minerals and landscape. Our activities are aimed at junior members under the age of 16 and for older young people between 16-18 years old.

The English Geodiversity Forum is a collective voice for England's geodiversity and is open to all. Everyone can help contribute to its goals.
