General MEetings

The Explorers Club of Pittsburgh holds its general membership meeting at 7:30 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month. Immediately following the business meeting we customarily conduct a presentation of travels and adventures of members (sometimes an informational session or demonstration). Following the presentation, the group socializes at a bar near the meeting.

The meetings are open to the public.  All current and prospective members are most welcome!

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all meetings will be available via Google Meet at the link below:


The next meeting will be held on August 12 at Lakeshore Shelter @ North Park
