The Geology Section of the Peoria Academy of Science is dedicated to the study of all fields of the Earth Sciences, including geology, mineralogy, paleontology, conchology, and the lapidary arts. Educational programs relating to aspects of the earth sciences are presented at the monthly meetings, and members participate in field trips to collect minerals and fossils as well as hold workshops to conduct in-depth studies of specific topics. In addition to member activities, the club operates outreach programs to improve geology education by hosting an annual rock, mineral, gem, and fossil show and by supporting geology education in area classrooms. In addition to being part of the Peoria Academy of Science, the geology section is affiliated with the American Federation of Mineralology Societies, the Midwest Federation of Mineralogical and Geological Societies, and the Geodeland Earth Science Clubs.
