Promoting Geodiverity across Lancashire
What is GeoLancashire?
GeoLancashire is an amalgamation of the former Lancashire RIGs Group and the Lancashire Group of the Geologists’ Association. The RIGs group was formed to promote geoconservation in 1991 while the LGGA has existed since the 1920’s to encourage interest in the geology generally through lectures and excursions. Recognising that our membership already overlapped and that our activities were complimentary, the two organisations formally became one in 2014 and adopted the name “GeoLancashire” for the new combined group.
The activities and interests of GeoLancashire remain the same. A programme of winter lectures and summer excursions will continue for members and our commitment to geoconservation continues unabated. We remain affiliated to the Geologists’ Association, NW Geodiversity Partnership and GeoUK and have close working links with many county-based organisations, especially the Wildlife Trust and Lancashire Environment Record Network.
