The mission of CGS is to provide scientific products and services about the State's geology, seismology, and mineral resources, including their related hazards, that affect the health, safety, and business interests of the people of California
In October 2005, the California Geological Survey (CGS) Bay Area Regional Office relocated to the USGS Menlo Park campus and entered into a partnership assuming responsibility for over-the-counter retail sales. The current inventory of USGS maps and publications remains the same, with the addition of CGS publications and products for sale. This State-Federal partnership creates a seamless "one-stop-shop" for delivery of natural science information products and services. In addition to sales activities, CGS geologists representing the Seismic Hazards Mapping Program and the Geologic Mapping Program are co-located in Building 3 on the USGS campus.
Hours of operations are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. For a map and directions to the CGS/USGS Map and Publication Sales (MaPS) office, please see http://online.wr.usgs.gov/kiosk/mparea3.html. We will be open during The Open House.
