We hold bi-weekly meeting every Tuesday to pass along information about upcoming activities and updates. AWG hosts fundraisers such as, a semiannual bake sale and an annual chili cook off in the winter. We are also involved in many community activities including, EPSCOR Women in Science Conference every spring, teaching young women geology with our activity booth. We attend Outdoor adventure days at local elementary schools teaching kids K-6 about geology, taking them through the rock cycle, minerals, fossils, and ability to dig for their own minerals in the sandbox we set up. We work in conjunction with AAPG to help local Boy and Girl Scout troops earn their geology badges, making learning geology fun for the kids. Activities for the club members include camping and caving trips, mineral collection, lecture series in geology, and networking social events with professionals in the industry.
