The Florida Department of Environmental Protection/Florida Geological Survey (DEP/FGS) is dedicated to facilitating a culture of responsible
environmental stewardship. This is achieved by proactively sharing knowledge through accessible geoscience data, active participation on advisory
committees, research and assessment publications, websites, public and technical presentations, and educational activities.
Research and information generated by the Florida Department of Environmental protection/Florida Geological Survey (FDEP/FGS) shapes the
public understanding of Florida’s geology. One of the priorities of FGS is effectively sharing that research in a way that translates well to
all ages and demographics. The end goal of our outreach efforts is about building relationships that can be mutually beneficial over the long
term, resulting in a more environmentally literate public.
As part of education and outreach, the FGS has a dedicated Internship Program for college and university students who are interested in
gaining real-world experience in the geosciences. In addition, FGS hosts and takes part in many events throughout the year. FGS geoscientists
are also available for classroom and organization visits. To schedule a speaker or ask a general question, please reach out to Sarah Erb or
