Earth Science Week 2007 - The Pulse of Earth Science

The week of October 14, 2007 was the tenth 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 2007.

Earth Science Week is a national project jointly sponsored by the Vermont Geological Society, Vermont Geological Survey at the Agency of Natural Resources, and the American Geological Institute. Numerous other individuals, organizations and businesses sponsor activities during the week. The Vermont Geological Survey focused on hosting Geologists-in-the-Parks, classroom visits and maintaining the calendar of events. OMYA, Inc. hosted another successful Open House with over 1000 visitors and 90 volunteers. OMYA and the Vermont Marble Exhibit were the main sponsors of the poster contest. The North branch Nature center in Montpelier sponsored a mineral ID day and a field trip. The American Geological Institute sponsored national art contests. For a list of classroom activities and a planning kit for 2008, contact AGI, 4220 King St., Alexandria, VA 22302. AGI sponsors national art, photography and essay contests for grades K-8 and for adults.
