On April 14, Rocky Mountain Wild will join other science-based non-profits and groups to support science! We’ll be tabling at Denver’s Civic Center Park at 8:30 am. Musicians and inspiring speakers will begin at 9 am, and the march will begin at 10 am.
The March for Science is a grassroots, all volunteer organized event, meant as a celebration of our passion for science and a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. Recent policy suggestions and changes have caused heightened worry among scientists, and the incredible and immediate outpouring of support has made clear that these concerns are also shared by countless people around the world. Mischaracterization of science as a partisan issue is a critical and urgent matter, one that too often has given policymakers cover to reject overwhelming evidence. The March for Science – while non-partisan – is openly political in its call for peer-reviewed evidence based policy, and is a time for people who support scientific research, science education, and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted.
Rocky Mountain Wild will be bringing information about our citizen science projects and we hope to bring a direct action people can take on the spot!
