Join this satellite march in solidarity with the March for Science in Washington DC. We'll start at the Chequamegon Food Co-op parking lot and march down Main Street in Ashland, ending at the Memorial Park band shell. We ask that people park on the street and not in the co-op parking lot.
The Bad River Watershed Association is a citizen science organization. We believe that the best available scientific methods serve as the foundation for action and decision-making about our watershed resources.
"The March for Science champions publicly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. We unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call for science that upholds the common good, and for political leaders and policymakers to enact evidence-based policies in the public interest." - March mission statement
Also, in honor of Earth Day and the importance of science, the Bay Area Film Society and Citizen's Climate Lobby are sponsoring a free screening of "Merchants of Doubt" at the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center on April 21 at 7:30pm. This film discusses the role propagandists have played in casting doubt on the validity of climate change science, and other issues affecting the environment and public health.
