The Buffalo Geological Society Gem and Mineral Show: “Dinosaurs are Coming” to the Buffalo Geological Society’s 53rd Annual Gem, Mineral and Fossil Show on March 18-19, 2023, at the Erie County Fairgrounds in the Grange, Market and New York State Police Buildings in Hamburg, NY, on Saturday, 9 am-7 pm and Sunday, 9 am-6 pm. In addition to models of over a dozen dinosaurs, there will be actual dinosaur bones collected by Glen LaPlaca, of Past & Present Science and Nature Store, on display. Click here for more information.

If you would like to volunteer to sit at our table and introduce geology and earth science as a career to interested kids and parents, please  let us know at president@bapg.org ASAP so we can add you to the VIP list (and obtain your lanyard.) Our table will be right by the front door, so please drop by to see our physical groundwater model or just say hello. We'll be right next to Dino Zack, who will have his glow-in-the dark fluorescent rock exhibit as well. I will also bring some of my dinosaur bones that I collected! Hope to see you there!

Geology Rocks on April 13: Each year, the New York State Council of Professional Geologists holds its annual fundraiser, Geology Rocks, in White Plains. The concert represents our third music-themed fundraiser event and will feature the band Dead Meat playing music made famous by the Grateful Dead. NYSCPG helps advance our profession, particularly spending the time and money lobbying regulators in Albany for our professional benefit. You may have heard that NYSCPG now has an Executive Administrator fulfilling the role to quarterback these efforts, so your support is greatly appreciated, especially if you are a registered P.G. here in New York. You can register here. If you are thinking about going, email me for information on car-pooling and hotel arrangements as I will be attending to represent BAPG.

Geology Days 2023: Once again, NYSCPG is hosting our annual Geology Days event in Saratoga Springs from November 6 to 9, 2023. If you are a PG in New York State, this is a chance to knock out all your required continuing education credits for the year. For more information or to become a sponsor, please click here. I went last year to our first-ever event of this kind, met many old colleagues and had a grand-old time learning lots of new stuff from seasoned professionals, so let me know at my email provided above if you are interested in attending or presenting so we can coordinate. 

BAPG Monthly Meeting Presenters Needed: If you or someone you work with can prepare a presentation for us, preferably for continuing education credit, please consider it. We all work on very interesting projects all the time and it can be very rewarding to share them with our peers. Again, feel free to reach out to me or any of our board members if you think you might have something to share.

BAPG would like to thank our 2021 Sustaining Members for their generous support.  Please visit their websites as their support is so very important to the sustainability of BAPG
