Residents of the Inland Northwest can join the national fight to defend and promote the sciences, and protest anti-science policies being set in place by the current Congress and White House, during a community rally on Earth Day. Building on the momentum of January’s nationwide Women’s March events, the March for Science takes place in hundreds of cities across the nation on April 22. Whether you’re marching to stand up for space exploration, wildlife/wildlands conservation, health science research or numerous other disciplines, the march allows us to show our support for fact-based science that impacts all life on our planet. Register online to say you’ll be there to help organizers determine a national head count. Also, make sure to check out Spokane’s annual Earth Day celebration happening the same day in the park from 10 am-5 pm, along with Earth Night events, from 5-11 pm (more info at bit.ly/2pg18nH).
