Earth Science Week

2003 Gallery- Eyes on Planet Earth: Monitoring Our Changing World

The week of October 12-18, 2003 was the sixth annual national celebration of Earth Science Week.
The week was a time for geoscientists and organizations to encourage stewardship of the Earth and to share knowledge about the Earth and how it works. The week provides an opportunity to expand public awareness and understanding of geology and its role in water and land use decisions, ecological issues, resource issues, and hazard mitigation. Click here to see the Governor's Proclamation for Earth Science Week 2003.

Earth Science Week is a national project jointly sponsored by the Vermont Geological Society, Vermont Geological Survey at the Agency of Natural Resources, Perkins Museum at University of Vermont, and the American Geological Institute. Numerous other individuals, organizations and businesses also sponsor activities during the week. The Vermont Geological Society and the Vermont Geological Survey focused on hosting and staffing Geologists-in-the-Parks. OMYA, Inc. hosted a successful Open House for the third year. Perkins Museum was not able to host the poster contest this year, but we look forward to its return in 2004. The American Geological Institute sponsored national art contests.

Geologists-in-the-Parks hosted approximately 140 students this year at Groton, Mt. Philo, and Little River State Parks. The students enjoyed hiking and learning how to interpret the landscape and geologic history of the parks.
