Thanks for joining us in celebrating Earth Science Week 2019 to and gain a better understanding and appreciation for the Earth Sciences. Events celebrate the theme, "Geoscience is for Everyone.” The event emphasized both the inclusive potential and the importance of the geosciences in the lives of all people. The theme was meant to encourage individuals of all backgrounds, ages, and abilities to engage with the geosciences, whether that is as a geoscience professional, a hobbyist, or through civic engagement. Because each person has a role in the areas that geoscientists study – including Earth’s resources, natural hazards, and understanding the wonder of our environment – geoscience truly is for everyone.
