NBMG Earth Science Week Field Trip, October 17 and 18, 2015

Fire and Ice—Geology of the Mount Rose Quadrangle, Lake Tahoe, and the Carson Range

Save the date!
Sign-ups will be available in September.

NBMG participates in Earth Science Week, the second full week in October, by coordinating annual geologic field trips for the general public. In 2014, NBMG also held an open house during Earth Science Week and plans to do so again in 2015. Information on both events will follow in coming weeks. Sign-ups for field trips are made available in the fall during the few weeks prior to the trips. Past field trip guides are available on our website.

This year’s Earth Science Week will be held from October 11-17, 2015 and will celebrate the theme “Visualizing Earth’s Systems.” Check back later for information about our annual NBMG Earth Science Week field trip and open house! Both events are free to the public!

Proclamation by the Governor:

Earth Science Week website:

“Earth Science Week is an international event which takes place during the second full week of October. The American Geosciences Institute organizes the event for the geoscience community and publicizes the event, distributes materials, and provides guidance to those interested in participating in Earth Science Week. Earth Science Week is a “grass roots” effort that depends on local geoscience and education groups to plan those events.”
