GEOWEEK 2018 is coming to Warwickshire!

What’s Geoweek you may well ask? Across many countries a national awareness week captures the essence of the local scenery and landscape, including the underlying Geology with a series of events which may include a geoscience field visit or guided walks. In Spain, it is estimated that 10,000 people participate in all sorts of events and earth science festivals on one day each year. Spanish Geolodays has taken off big time so 2018 marks the establishment of this initiative across the Britain.

The UK initiative seeks to introduce as many members of the public to geoscience as possible, mainly through outdoor urban and rural fieldwork. So, we hope you might be interested to find out more about your County, and in particular, some local walks lead by volunteers from the Warwickshire Geological Conservation Group (WGCG). Geoweek 2018 runs from 5th until 13th May.
