AGS 50th Anniversary

The Atlantic Geoscience Society is celebrating it’s 50th Anniversary in 2022!

Hosting the national conference:

One of the highlights is the opportunity to host the national conference (GAC – MAC – IAH-CNC – CSPG) from May 15th to 18th, 2022. As part of this meeting, AGS is hosting two events.

Those at the Icebreaker on Sunday, 15th May, can enjoy the birthday cake while catching up with colleagues.

Our signature social event is the Maritime Kitchen Party, Monday, May 16th from 7–11 p.m. at Cable Wharf (formerly Murphy’s on the Water). This event is open to all registrants to the conference and their guests (as well as any AGS members that are not participating in the conference), and we encourage you to purchase your ticket for the event as soon as possible as numbers are limited and tickets may not be available at the door. 

Your ticket includes finger foods, one drink ticket and lots of entertainment at one of the nicest venues on the Halifax waterfront. For those who are musically inclined we will have a house band along with extra musical instruments so think of it as karaoke “Maritime style”! Tickets are available online at the Fourwaves conference site (registration at the conference is not required). We may have limited tickets available at the door. Those already registered at the conference can edit your registration to add this event following instructions on the conference website

New AGS publications:

1. The Last Billion Years – a new edition
2. Nova Scotia Minerals and Gems brochure
3. Journey through time: places of geological significance in New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island – a new geological map of New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island
