Welcome to the Grand Junction Geological Society!


We are a Society of Earth Scientists interested in the natural resources, and geology of the region surrounding Grand Junction, Colorado.

We meet once a month for an evening meeting during the months of September through May. This meeting features an invited speaker.  We meet at 7:30 PM at the Saccommanno Room of the Science Building (Wubben Hall) on the Colorado Mesa University campus.

We conduct field trips on an ad hoc basis throughout the year and enjoy the comaraderie and diverse expertise of our members. We encourage membership and participation of all geologists from students to seasoned professionals, and we welcome all interested parties to our meetings.

The entire GJGS family is saddened by the passing of Bill Chenowith on July 24, 2018. Bill had graciously served the society in the capacity of Secretary and Treasurer since the early 1960's. Bill was a tremendous person and the unquestioned master historian of Grand Junction's "Uranium Era". Bill will be missed greatly by all who knew him.
