Partner Profile – Geologists in the Geopark

Geologists in the Geopark

This is a group of professional and amateur geologists which provides a service to all members of the Geopark when requested. It has produced rock and fossil detective trails, sets of specimens for public use, geology trails, children’s activities, lectures and guided walks.  Expertise exists in general and local geology, teaching, quarrying, vulcanology, engineering and structural geology, geoconservation and landscape interpretation. The group has a few major undertakings for GeoFest 2017 – an exhibition at Bewdley Museum about geology as seen from space; rock and fossil hunts at Severn Valley Country Park, an exhibition about fossils at Worcester cathedral; and a craft based roving project called ‘Lines in the Landscape’.
