Since 1998 the American Geological Institute annually organizes “a grass roots” effort for the geosciences community and publicizes the event, distributes materials and provides guidance to those interested in participating in ESW.
Local geosciences and education groups plan events ranging from photography contests to providing earth science studies materials to teachers.
The program is supported by the AAPG Foundation, U.S. Geological Survey, NASA, the National Park Service and other geoscience groups.
