●  American Geosciences Institute

AGI was founded in 1948, under a directive of the National Academy of Sciences, as a network of associations representing geoscientists with a diverse array of skills and knowledge of our planet. The Institute provides information services to geoscientists, serves as a voice of shared interests in our profession, plays a major role in strengthening geoscience education, and strives to increase public awareness of the vital role the geosciences play in society’s use of resources, resilience to natural hazards, and the health of the environment.

●  Association of American State Geologist-List of State Geological Surveys

This link takes you to a handy interactive map of the United States and Puerto Rico, where clicking on any one will take you straight to the Geological Survey site for that state. Not only useful for exploring information for your state, but also for any other you might want to visit, or on which you might want to research in anticipation of an upcoming visit.
