Several GES employees attended the Geological Association of New Jersey’s (GANJ) 2017 Conference  and Field Trip hosted by West Chester University.  The conference theme was The Piedmont: Old Rocks, New Understandings and included workshops, presentations, and discussion sessions at the University on Friday followed by a Saturday field trip. 

Professors from universities across the region presented findings from their recent research on rocks in the area, and the day concluded with a keynote speech from Pennsylvania’s State Geologist, Gale C. Blackmer, PhD.  The field trip visited several local outcrops within the Piedmont described by the researchers.  These local rocks are currently of great interest to our geologists who are consulting on several pipeline installation projects in the area that traverse and drill through these very same rocks.

Several GES offices took time out to celebrate their hard work and enjoy the outdoors together before the summer season came to a close. The outings ranged from taking in a baseball game to taking on the rapids during a tubing trip. One thing is for sure; our teams sure know how to have a good time.

Many GES offices celebrate with similar team outings throughout the year to recognize the hard work that goes into our success. Keep an eye out for future GES team events and outings.

On August 21, 2017, skies darkened from Oregon to South Carolina in the first total solar eclipse visible from coast to coast across the United States in 99 years. So what do you do when your office sits along the Path of Totality?

You throw an office party, of course, complete with cake and other goodies. That’s exactly what our Columbia, SC team did as they celebrated the rare opportunity to take in a total solar eclipse. But, they weren’t the only GES office excited about the eclipse.  Employees across the country took a few minutes out of their day to steal a glimpse the partial eclipse, which was still pretty cool.

And yes, approved solar viewing glasses were worn by everyone as recommended by NASA and GES’ Vice President of HSSE, Tom Baylis.
