Community Outreach

Do you have a question, or would you like someone to speak to your organization?

Department of Geoscience faculty frequently work with members of the Las Vegas community and far beyond. Faculty, such as Dr. Steve Rowland, have served as advisors on committees to federal agencies looking to protect special resources in the valley like Tule Springs. Dr. Jean Cline has worked extensively with the Yucca Mountain Project. Others, like Dr. Wanda Taylor, have sat on committees related to earthquake hazards. Dr. Dave Kreamer helped evaluate hydrologic processes at Yucca Mountain early in the project’s development. Drs. Peg Rees and Wanda Taylor have assisted the Red Rocks National Conservation area in developing a site specific geology guide (Geologic Guide to Red Rock Canyon).
