2021 Earth Science Week Photos

A big thank you to everyone that attended Saturday’s NBMG Earth Science Week field trip and to our Earth Science Week team leaders! We had a great turnout and the best weather you could ask for on a beautiful fall day! The tour took us to our three rivers here in western Nevada starting with the Truckee River and ending along the banks of the West Fork of the Walker River in Wilson Canyon. The NBMG team leaders discussed the geology and ecosystems along each of these rivers and their surrounding watersheds, geothermal energy production, past mining activities, landscape evolution, and natural hazards. Plans are in the works to provide a self-guided version of this field trip including a podcast and interactive map, so please stay tuned!
