The March for Science
Apr

The March for Science

The March for Science is a celebration of science.

Join us in standing together to acknowledge and voice the critical role that science plays in each of our lives. There is parking at the Coupeville Elementary School, and we will be walking along Kettles Trail.

The March for Science champions and defends science and scientific integrity, but it is a small step in the process toward encouraging the application of science in policy. We understand that the most effective way to protect science is to encourage the public to value and invest in it. 

The best way to ensure science will influence policy is to encourage people to appreciate and engage with science. That can only happen through education, communication, and ties of mutual respect between scientists and their communities — the paths of communication must go both ways. There has too long been a divide between the scientific community and the public.
