USGS Flagstaff Science Campus back from shutdown: A notice from the SCD

12 February 2019  alt=

We would like to take this time to extend thanks to our community for their unwavering support during the partial government shutdown. The USGS Flagstaff Science Campus is back fully operational as of January 28 from the longest shutdown in history lasting 35 days. More than 30 businesses in Flagstaff provided services to all furloughed workers: the help was there if needed. We were equally impressed that many of our furloughed employees were giving back to the community, simultaneously, as private citizens, by volunteering at a variety of locations throughout the region. It is good to know we are so fortunate to live in such a caring and compassionate community. Again, thanks to all who contributed service, time, resources, and moral support.
