Geological Society of America Donation
GONIL community members have voted to support the Geological Society of America’s EarthCache Program. GONIL will be accepting donations at select events during April and May (with the CO’s permission) and will also accept donations via the GONIL store. GONIL will match the first $100 of donations made by our members so we have a chance to make a bigger impact. To learn more about the EarthCache program please visit their website
