Casper College has got to be one of the best places on earth to study geology, as Wyoming is replete with geological formations from the Pre-Cambrian era to recent.
The oil, mineral, and gas industries provide a strong economic base in Wyoming. Tourism is enhanced by the numerous fossil beds, archeological sites, and geological formations within the state.
Visitors to the Casper College campus may have hands-on experiences at the Tate Geological Museum with rocks, minerals, gemstones, fossil casting, and dinosaur skeleton assembly. Some of our geology courses are also offered online.
The purpose of the Geology Club is to enhance the learning experience in the various disciplines of Earth Science for Casper College students and members of the community.
Students gain hands-on experience and opportunities to meet professionals and non-professionals in the field. Field trips, events with the museum and other venues make every moment memorable and fun.
Meetings are held at Noon the first Tuesday of each month in room 121 at the Tate Museum except during the summer.
