|North East Yorkshire Geology Trust, who are we and what do we do?|
local people with a genuine interest in local geology and landscape.
The Trust receives no government funding, we rely on raising our own money, mainly through project grants.
Most of our members are active volunteers who contribute their time and expertise to help with our many projects.
The Geology Trust seeks to protect valuable Local Earth Heritage and where possible share it with a wider public for education and recreation.
The Trust operates with an independent and pragmatic approach. The sites we wish to protect and use are on other peoples land and often have additional value for biology, archaeology, landscape and history, all these interests are taken into account.
work of the Geology Trust takes place in two parts,
|Part one: protecting Local Earth
Surveying the whole of the
North East of Yorkshire, our area covers most of the North Yorkshire
Moors National Park and extends down onto the Yorkshire Wolds.
|Part two: sharing Local Earth
The Geology Trust has many activities to encourage understanding and enjoyment of Local Earth Heritage and involve local people in appreciating the beautiful landscapes in which we all live [for more details of events check the diary page].
