We protect locally important sites by surveying them, and if necessary designating them as Local Geology Sites (formerly known as RIGS- Regionally Important Geological and Geomorphological Sites), which can then be protected through the planning process. OGT has designated over 50 sites within the county. The only way that sites will be protected is if people believe that they are worth protecting. The only way that sites will be protected is if people believe that they are worth protecting. OGT runs projects and events to help the public understand and appreciate the significance of Oxfordshire’s geology.

You could be involved with a wide range of activities, from surveying sites, to helping run events and activities, or leading guided walks.
