Typical Club activities include

Fall/Winter Speakers series: The club organises several guest speakers a year on subjects in the natural sciences. Our relatively small size allows more detailed and accesible exploration of these topics as well as chances to ask questions of the experts.

Summer field trips: The club recognises the importance of field work in the context of science. We generally have a beginner fossil field trip in the local area for people to build their skills and an intermediate field trip to the surrounding area as well. In addition we have field trips to explore living environments in the context of biology/ecology and natural history.

Freeform meetings providing room for shorter presentations on ongoing topics, fossil identifications and a chance for people to get to know each other. This allows new members to rapidly build knowledge and experienced members to discuss topics of interest in greater detail.

Everyone is invited, however people attending field trips are required to pay membership dues in order to cover insurance costs. It is possible to keep what you find.
