I am the faculty advisor for the Pitt-Johnstown Geolgy Club. One of the main goals of the club is learn about the natural world and to pass along that knowledge to others. Most of our activities involve field trips to wonderal natural wonders.

The club is is open to all majors at Pitt-Johnstown. Check the Geology Study Lounge (Krebs Hall 222) to find out when the next meeting will be.

Geology Club Spring Break Trips:
Each year the Geology Club takes a big trip over spring break to see some placethat is geologically interesting. Students choose the location and Dr. Kerrigan organizes it. Come to the meetings to find out where our next trip will be!
The guidebooks are in pdf form but if you would like a microsoft word copy so you can alter and customize your own trip, feel free to email me.
