Geoscientists from Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology (NBMG) explain the geology of the Fallon area in celebration of Earth Science Week 2018 and the importance of earth sciences to the people of the state of Nevada.

Major stops on this field trip will include the following:
  • Salt Wells geothermal power plant
  • Rainbow Mountain earthquake fault scarp
  • “Nevada Wonderstone” rockhounding locality
  • “Big Dig” flood mitigation project in Lahontan Valley
  • Rattlesnake Hill, a “young” (<1 million year old) volcanic cinder cone and lava flow complex overlooking Fallon
  • Soda Lake volcanoes (youngest in Nevada!)
NBMG coordinates annual geology field trips for the public during, or near, Earth Science Week. These field trips are fun, educational, family oriented, and always free. NBMG has been an active participant in Earth Science Week since it began in 1998.

Since October 1998, the American Geosciences Institute has organized this national and international event to help the public gain a better understanding and appreciation for the Earth sciences and to encourage stewardship of the Earth. This year's Earth Science Week will be held from October 14-20, 2018 and will celebrate the theme "Earth as Inspiration." The coming year's event will emphasize artistic expression as a unique, powerful opportunity for geoscience education and understanding in the 21st century.

Governor Sandoval has also proclaimed October 14-20, 2018 as Earth Science Week in Nevada.
