NYSGA Mission

“Trusting that this coming first excursion may be enjoyed by all and that it may be the beginning of annual gatherings of like character for our mutual benefit and the fuller knowledge of our great out-of-door science, I remain faithfully yours.”

Harry N. Eaton, Syracuse University, April 25, 1925

The simple mission of NYSGA

The New York State Geological Association is a group of geoscientists and geoscience enthusiasts that come together once a year for a weekend of field excursions to experience the geology of an area within New York State (and sometimes in the adjacent states and Canada).  Through the annual field conference and accompanying field guide, the association’s mission is to promote the general understanding of the geology of New York State.
