Earth Science Week Photography Competition

Geology on your doorstep

During Earth Science Week 2013, we're encouraging everyone to get outside and explore their local geology - whether you live in the city or the countryside! On October 12th we're holding the Great Geowalk, where self guided as well as guided tours will be taking place across the country.
