The Association of American State Geologists adopted a resolution designating the second full week of October as Earth Science Week. In July, 1998, Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) read a statement containing this resolution into the Congressional Record. In 2002, AASG passed a motion to reaffirm their support of Earth Science Week.

A gubernatorial proclamation from your state sends a message emphasizing the importance of celebrating Earth Science Week. AGI is currently working with each state geological survey to encourage proclamations to be made on the state and national level. If your state has not yet officially recognized Earth Science Week, you can work with your state geological survey to encourage your governor to proclaim Earth Science Week an event in your state.
