Geowalks

Whilst Earth Science Week events may have come to an end you can still go on your own self guided geowalk, you can find a range of links to self guided walks on our geowalks page.

School visits

We’d love more geologists to take part in school workshops – let us know if you have ideas, or have a look at our education resources for some inspiration. If you’re a school or college interested in a visit from a geologist, get in touch!


Register your event

Social Media

We’d love to hear from you during the week with pictures or details of what you’re doing. If you're running an event or activity we'd be happy to add it to our listings.
