The Michigan Basin Geological Society (MBGS) has donated funds to allow us to purchase more of the Michigan Rock Collections that the students we visit always love so much.
The Michigan Basin Geological Society was founded in 1936 as an affiliated non-profit organization of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas relating to the field of petroleum geology through field excursions and meetings.
Throughout the years, the role of the society has changed, and both meetings and field excursions now address a wide range of topics pertaining to the study of geology of the Michigan Basin, and is open to anyone interested in geology.
