The East Tennessee Geological Society is a non-profit society of nearly 100 geoscientists in East Tennessee. Most of us live & work in the Knoxville/Oak Ridge area, but we have members from Memphis to the Tri-Cities area and beyond.
ETGS has held gatherings in the Knoxville area since February 28, 1975. In recent years, the Society has been maintained mainly by geologists and hydrogeologists working in the Oak Ridge ecological arena. However, our membership also includes petroleum specialists, quarry geologists, gemologists, drilling workers, professors, undergraduates & geologists currently working in other fields.
