Virtual Celebration of Earth Day And Geologists Day 2022

Geologists Day is an official holiday for geologists in Russia and other former states of the Soviet Union, Established in 1966, the holiday is traditionally celebrated on the first Sunday of April. The timing of the holiday, the first Sunday in April, was chosen because it marks the end of winter and beginning of preparation for summer field work and expeditions. Now, Geologists Day is celebrated worldwide.
