Geo-Ecology Club
University of Maine at Presque Isle

The Geo-Ecology Club was founded in about 1973, originally as the Geology Club; the name was changed to Geo-Ecology in 1990. The club has always had a small, but active membership dedicated to learning more about geology and Ecology issues. The club typically sponsors several field trips and visiting speakers during the year.
