The Utah Geological Association (UGA) is a non-profit organization of geologists and other geoscientists that share a common interest in Utah's geology. The purpose of the UGA is to increase and disperse geological information to the scientific community, and promote public awareness of the usefulness of geology in general. The UGA does this through the voluntary efforts of its members by holding a monthly lunch meeting that includes a lecture, the yearly publication of a geologic guidebook, conducting a yearly field trip, and other educational activities.
