National Association of Geoscience Teachers
Pacific Northwest Section
WELCOME to the PNW Section!
Welcome to the home of the Pacific Northwest Section of the NAGT. Our section is comprised of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Alaska and the Canadian Provinces of British Columbia and Yukon.
The goal of the PNW Section is to provide educational resources to NW geoscience community, via our website, periodic (Spring, Fall, Winter) newsletters, the annual field conference, and our Facebook page. The field conference is our #1 outreach program; geoscientists from around the PNW and further afield congregate the 3rd week in June each year for our Sectional Meeting, which includes a day of talks and several regional geology field trips. To learn more, check out the Meetings page.
