The U.S. National Committee for the International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS) is presenting the America’s Geoheritage II: Identifying, Developing, and Preserving America’s Natural Legacy Distinguished Speaker Webinar Series throughout fall 2020, many Tuesdays at 11:00 am EDT. These presentations will introduce the underlying rationale and concepts of the Geoheritage initiative, and the contributions that are being made by numerous stakeholders in the geoscience community. These presentations are free and open to everyone interested in using Geoheritage sites to promote research, education, public outreach, community planning, and geotourism. These presentations will set the stage for a virtual writing part of the workshop that will be convened the week of January 10, 2021 to further explore opportunities to develop and promote Geoheritage sites across the United States. Save the dates, be informed, and plan to contribute to Geoheritage in your own geologic setting!
