We hope you can join us on Saturday, October 13 as geoscientists from Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology explain the geology of the Fallon area (volcanoes, earthquakes, and faults)—in celebration of Earth Science Week 2018 and the importance of earth sciences to the people of the state of Nevada.
NBMG coordinates annual geology field trips for the public during, or near, Earth Science Week. These field trips are fun, educational, family oriented, and always free. NBMG has been an active participant in Earth Science Week since it began in 1998.

Earth Science Week is October 14-20, 2018.
Since October 1998, the American Geosciences Institute has organized this national and international event to help the public gain a better understanding and appreciation for the Earth sciences and to encourage stewardship of the Earth. This year’s Earth Science Week will be held from October 14-20, 2018 and will celebrate the theme “Earth as Inspiration.” The coming year’s event will emphasize artistic expression as a unique, powerful opportunity for geoscience education and understanding in the 21st century.
