The Geoconservation section gives an overview of geoconservation in Hertfordshire; details of our RIGS and SSSI sites, including those where the HGS is particularly active; and links to UK-wide and international organisations

The Resources section gives plenty of suggestions for further exploration, including other nearby groups; places to visit both locally and UK-wide; and a selection of learning resources including courses, web sites, talks etc.
