Get Your Park ON! Earth Sciences Week

The fourth annual operating event, Get your Park On! Celebrating Earth Science Week will occur October 9-17, 2021. The event is open to all WWFF Activators and Hunters and is sponsored by the U.S. (KFF) affiliate of World Wide Flora and Fauna (WWFF).

This year again will be an International event inviting all Activators through the world to participate. Hunters everywhere are invited to search out and contact Activators everywhere, making this truly a worldwide, DX event.

Get Your Park ON! will start October 9 at 0000 UTC and run through October 17at 2359 UTC. These dates include the full weekends on each side of Earth Science Week.

This year will include Get Your Park ON! Celebrating Earth Science Week Special Event Stations (GYPO SES). These stations will be active from KFF parks throughout the week operating with 1×1 callsigns, e.g., N5G. Hunters are encouraged to work as many of these Special Event Stations as possible, with special recognition given to those working ten or more.

A complete list of the Special Event Stations will be provided at the start of GYPO. Their operating plans and schedules will be posted on their individual QRZ pages.

Since October 1998, the American Geosciences Institute has organized Earth Science Week, a national and international event. They do this to help the public gain a better understanding and appreciation for the Earth sciences and to encourage stewardship of the Earth, a common goal shared by World Wide Flora and Fauna. Both programs encourage their participants to get outside and enjoy nature.

More information on rules, web sites, awards, etc. can be found on wwff.us.
