Welcome to the BCGS website. The Black Country Geological Society is based in Dudley, West Midlands, England. The society was formed in 1975 and has, since then, maintained a strong active membership. Our members come from all backgrounds and include interested amateurs, professional geologists, teachers, and students of all ages. We hold regular meetings to listen to invited lecturers, in addition to field trips to sites of geologic interest.
Indoor meetings normally take place during the winter months at the Dudley Museum and Art Gallery. Field meetings usually take place on Saturdays or Sundays during the summer. The Society welcomes guests and new members but it is advisable to check first before attending in case of last minute schedule changes.
The society has often been called upon to advise local industry and government on geological and environmental matters, in addition to undertaking voluntary conservation work.
ALERT: Programme updates through until April 2013.
