Lothian & Borders GeoConservation Programme
The Volunteer Group welcomes anyone interested in any aspect of local geology and conservation. The group has evening meetings every month, and also gets involved in occasional work parties and other events.
Winter meetings 2013-2014
The Lothian and Borders GeoConservation volunteer group has an indoor meeting every month during winter and spring. These are informal meetings to discuss ongoing projects, and everyone is welcome. This winter we are progressing with leaflets on the Pentland Hills, River Esk, Siccar Point and the Cramond area. Come along and find out more!
Meetings usually take place on the first Wednesday of the month at 7.30pm in BGS Murchison House, West Mains Road, Edinburgh.
Dates for 2014 are 4 September, 9 October, 20 November, 4 December, 8 January, 5 February, 5 March, 2 April and 7 May.

The Geology of Holyrood Park - information for the Polish Community in Edinburgh and visitors from Poland
Joanna Weintritt, originally from Poland, was a member of the Lothian GeoConservation Volunteer Group. She has started a project to create Polish-language resources to tell people about the geology of Edinburgh ... which even considering the wide range of activities that GeoConservation groups get up to across the UK, must be unique! Her first publication covered Holyrood Park and Arthur's Seat, and is available as a pdf file.
