This year, Earth Science Week is celebrating the theme “Earth Materials in Our Lives.” In conjunction with the theme, the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology virtual field trip will take us on a tour of the natural history and geological resources in the northern Hot Springs Mountains of west-central Nevada. Our field trip will be a little different this year, as we aim to bring the outdoors and wonder of our unique state to you remotely, and socially distanced. This year we won’t be following a road log, or touring sites in person, but we will be bringing some beautiful scenery, fascinating geology, and natural history directly to you, wherever you are. Thank you for being a part of our virtual Earth Science Week tour!

A big thank you goes to Rachel and Jim for getting us “out of the house” with such a wonderful virtual trip this year, and hope you will all join NBMG for an in-person trip celebrating Earth Science Week next year!
