87th Annual Field Conference of Pennsylvania Geologists

2024 | Gettysburg, PA

FCOPG 2023 Conference Cancelled

It is with great regret and sad hearts that we are announcing the decision to postpone this year’s Field Conference of PA Geologists. While the conference itself is not state funded, there is a significant number of state employees that attend the conference. The officers met to discuss the viability of the conference given the State Budget impasse and found that the potential loss of the state employee registrations would put us in a financial situation that we would not recover from. This decision was not entered into lightly and all alternate options were discussed.

We will work to postpone this conference until next year and look forward to seeing you all then.

We are deeply sorry for any inconvenience this might cause.


The Field Conference of Pennsylvania Geologists is an annual conference for industry, government, academic, and student geologists working and studying in Pennsylvania. For over 90 years geologists have attended the conference at locations throughout Pennsylvania.
