DCNR Exploring Careers Outdoors (ECO) Days - Geology

Students in 9-12th grade are invited to spend the day at beautiful Hickory Run State Park to learn about several careers in the outdoors. Sign up for one or more of the following careers you’d like to learn more about: Forestry, Geology, Resource Management and Wildlife Biology, and State Parks. Each program will include time in the field with professionals participating in hands-on activities and will include information on career requirements, internship opportunities, and the NEOGOV hiring process.

During this ECO Day, you’ll spend some time with staff from DCNR’s Bureau of Geological Survey which is more than 180 years old. Geologists and partners work to map the surface and subsurface geology of the state. They also provide maps, publications, reports, groundwater information, earth science education, petroleum, and subsurface geology information essential to environmental stewardship, human health and safety, infrastructure development and economic growth. Participate in a mapping exercise and visit Hickory Run’s unique geologic wonder, the boulder field during this interesting day in the field. DCNR offers careers as a Geologic Scientist and Geologic Trainee to name a few.

Registration is required, please use the green button. Please dress for being outdoors, wear closed toed shoes, and bring a lunch and water. This program is free of charge and participants will receive a variety of free materials for each corresponding career topic.
