A Citywide Celebration of Earth Science
October 9-15, 2016
Earth Science Week, the geoscience community's leading public awareness campaign, reaches over 50 million people a year through instructional materials, events, promotions, media coverage, and the Internet. The celebration has taken place annually since its inception in 1998, and Houston has always played a big part!
Earth Science Week Houston's founding partners - the Houston Geological Society and the American Geosciences Institute - invite you to take advantage of the wealth of educational materials, events, and opportunities available:
“Our Shared Geoheritage” the theme of Earth Science Week 2016. Geoheritage is the collection of natural wonders, landforms, and resources that have formed over eons and come to this generation to manage, use, and conserve effectively. Geoheritage locations are valued for many reasons, including scientific, economic, ecological, educational, cultural, aesthetic, artistic, and recreational purposes.
