Origin of Maps In Schools Outreach

Inspired by the leadership of our late colleague, Owen Hopkins, #2986, from Corpus Christi, the SIPES Houston Chapter began placing USGS geologic maps of the U.S. lower 48 states in local schools in 2009.

SIPES Houston has had an outreach project since 2009 donating framed geologic maps of the United States to schools, primarily in the greater Houston area.

Each of these maps cost $400 - so the more money raised, the many more schools who will have beautiful maps and an educational opportunity from industry vets!
