EARTH SCIENCE WEEK PROCLAMATION!!

Earth Science Week Proclamation Governor Phil Murphy has signed a Proclamation declaring October 10th through the 16th as Earth Science Week in New Jersey in hopes of encouraging all New Jerseyans to learn more about the Earth Sciences. Since October of 1998, the American Geosciences Institute (AGI) has organized the international Earth Science Week. Always the second full week of the month, Earth Science Week 2021 runs from October 10th through the 16h. Each year, a theme is chosen; this year it is “Water Today and for the Future”. The four main goals of Earth Science week are to engage students in discovering the Earth Sciences, remind people that Earth science is all around us, encourage Earth stewardship through understanding, and to motivate geoscientists to share their enthusiasm and knowledge about the Earth. The New Jersey Geological and Water Survey (NJGWS) is a supporter of the internationally recognized Science Week. More information can be found on the AGI website at http://www.earthsciweek.org/ and on the NJGWS website: https://www.nj.gov/dep/njgs/..
