The Explorers Club is a multidisciplinary, professional society dedicated to advancement of field research, scientific exploration, and the ideal that it is vital to preserve the instinct to explore. The Club's goals in research, education, and public service include the orientation of young people toward careers in field science and engineering, and the encouragement of scientific exploration of land, sea, the air, and space, with the emphasis on the physical, natural, and biological sciences. As a chapter of the "World Center for Exploration" we serve as a common bond and meeting point for explorers and field scientists world-wide, thus continuing the early goals laid down by our founders in 1904.
