Celebrate Earth Science Week

Oct. 9-15, 2022

Geology and the other branches of the earth sciences are essential in achieving environmental protection goals.

Since many of our actions that protect the environment rely on science-driven data, DEP's Florida Geological Survey joins the American Geoscience Institute every year in celebrating Earth Science Week. This year's theme is "Earth Science for a Sustainable World," which will emphasize the essential role of Earth Science in helping people make decisions that maintain and strengthen the planet's ability to support thriving life. Learn more about the geology in your world at the FGS Open House, a guided hike through Leon Sinks Geological Area and the Earth Science Week drawing.
