Weather forecasts and the Southwestern environment will be highlighted Wednesday afternoon, November 10, as The U.S. Geological Survey and the National Weather Service (NWS) host an open house at their facilities in the Dennis DeConcini Environment and Natural Resources Building on the University of Arizona campus. The 2:30-6 p.m. open house will follow the 1 p.m., official rededication of the building, in DeConcini’s honor. The two federal agencies have occupied the building at 520 North Park Avenue, since February 1997.

During the open house visitors will have the opportunity to view the NWS operations room, where forecasts for southern Arizona are generated, and learn about USGS research projects in Arizona and other southwestern states, dealing with global climate change, mineral and water resources and mammals, birds, fish and amphibians. Live snakes will be part of one of the USGS exhibits.

The USGS serves the nation by providing reliable scientific information to describe and understand the Earth; minimize loss of life and property from natural disasters; manage water, biological, energy, and mineral resources; and enhance and protect our quality of life.
