Geology Club

The University of Maine Geology Club (originally the Rock and Hammer Club, founded in 1947) is an undergraduate run organization that plans a wide variety of activities associated with geology.  Past activities include: local hiking and camping trips, a week long trip to the Colorado Plateau,  as well as some non-geology related events such as bowling nights and a Department chili cookoff.  The club is primarily for Earth and Climate Sciences undergraduate students, but anyone interested in Geology is welcome to join.  Check out the Club Archives below to see what activities the club has done in the past, as well as information on how to join.

Club Archives

In recent years, the Geology Club has been on numerous fun and exciting adventures, both locally and afar.  Most recently we went on a week-long trip to the Colorado Plateau.  The trip had 10 students and three faculty members.  While out there, the club hiked the Grand Canyon, explored several state and National Parks, including Petri?ed Forest National Park, and learned about the geology of the American Southwest.  The year before that we also took a week-long road trip down to North Carolina.  On the way, the Club did some hiking, lots of camping, went to several museums, and even got to rock climb.  A smaller trip earlier in the year took the Club to Grand Manan Island, Canada to explore the geology there.
