In the US, we celebrate all the contributions that Geologists make to our society on September 20th. Well, I don’t know that the entire US celebrates, but by God, they should! The Association of Engineering Geologists, which I have been a member of off and on, looks at it a different way. They note that Geologist’s Day is a day when geologists should do something extra in service of their profession, to advocate for geoscience and geologists. I certainly appreciate all of the things that geologists do in our society and agree that this is a day worth celebrating! And on the first Sunday in April, we can celebrate again with the Russian holiday!
