National Earth Science Week runs from October 13 to 19, and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in Woods Hole, MA, is inviting local students (in kindergarten through eighth grade), along with parents and teachers, to an Earth Science Week celebration entitled "GeoFest: Earth Adventures." Earth Science Week is celebrated annually to increase public awareness and understanding of the Earth sciences and to give people of all ages the opportunity to discover the connection between their lives and the Earth. The USGS' GeoFest will be held at the Carriage House next to the Woods Hole Field Center on Saturday, October 26, 2002.

The USGS hopes to expose students to Earth-science concepts in a fun and exciting way. The event will include numerous hands-on exhibits created and attended by USGS scientists, engineers, and technicians. Geologists will lead a short "geology walk" along part of the Woods Hole Bike Path. Please contact Kate Visser at or (508) 457-2331 if you'd like to be a part of the event!
