Summary:What’s an awe-inspiring natural feature in your state? Maybe it’s a mountain, canyon, waterfall, glacier, cave, volcano, geyser, natural arch, grand vista, or something else. Identify an inspiring landscape near you, and learn about the geoscience behind it. Start with the geologic maps available from your state geological survey, and consult other resources, such as rainfall maps, natural hazard maps, and maps of native species. Then tell the story of the natural feature you selected — in an essay, artwork, song, or other form of creative expression. Share with your classmates!
