The Northwest Geological
Society (NWGS), based in Seattle, Washington, provides an
educational forum for the presentation and discussion of a wide range
of geologic topics, emphasizing those of the Pacific Northwest or of
fundamental scientific interest.
NWGS is a regional association of roughly 250 professionals, students, retirees, and other persons interested in the field of geology. Our membership includes geologists from private consulting firms, government agencies, academia, and also a significant number of non-geologists (that form an important part of our group). Members range in age from teenagers to octogenarians. Approximately 20- to- 25 percent of our members are students. NWGS is a non-profit corporation, registered with the State of Washington and the Internal Revenue Service. Membership is open to anyone.
Philosophy of the NWGS web site: This site strives to be a regional resource of Northwest geological information--attempting to gather information and key Internet reference links in one location. The site format is non-commercial and non-political. Graphics are limited to allow members with slow modem connections relatively quick page loading. We welcome submissions and recommendations to this web site. This web site was established in 1998 by Dave Knoblach, Webmaster.
This web site is generously hosted by the Seattle Community Network, a free public-access computer network based in the Seattle Public Library.
