The Geological Society of Nevada (GSN) is a non-profit scientific society whose principal mission is to promote the advancement of the geological sciences, especially as they relate to Nevada. The Society encourages the dissemination of scientific and practical knowledge through semiformal presentations, field trips and symposia as well as by publishing the literature resulting from these activities. GSN’s many publications and professional papers can be found on our website: www.gsnv.org. Individual membership dues are $50/year which includes a monthly newsletter; membership directory; and invitations to the organization’s four monthly meetings held in Reno, Elko, Las Vegas and Winnemucca from September through May each year.
The Society has developed a secondary mission, through the GSN Foundation, of funding a number of earth science related charitable programs, including grants for K-12 field trips, university scholarships and grants for geological mapping.
