Earth Science Week

Earth Science Week is an internationally recognized celebration that helps the public gain a better understanding of, and appreciation for, the Earth Sciences. Organized by the American Geosciences Institute (AGI), this annual celebration has occurred since 1998.

DGMR celebrated Earth Science Week in our Charlottesville office October 11-13, 2016. The theme this year was Our Shared Geoheritage, exploring Virginia’s Water Resources, Habitat, and Mineral Resources. Geoheritage is the collection of resources and natural wonders that have been created over time. This theme promoted stewardship and understanding of these resources.

Next Earth Science Week will be celebrated October 8-14, 2017. Please stay tuned for updates!
