Celebrate science in the Hudson Valley! Join the March for Science for the Hudson Valley and Science Teach-in. The Hudson Valley March for Science is one of over 400 world wide marches happening worldwide on Earth Day, April 22. 

This march is a non-partisan event meant to celebrate and promote the importance of science in a free, just, and prosperous society.

In addition to a march, we are organizing a Science Teach-in at Waryas Park. The goal of the Teach-in is to create an environment in which people can learn about science in a relaxed, largely informal way. There are two parts to the Teach-in: tables and activities, and Free Range Science Q&A. We are inviting local organizations to set up tables on local citizen science projects, information on local organizations involved in science, conservation, etc. The Free Range Science Q&A takes advantage of the assembly of local scientists and science-curious citizens to spark small group and individual conversations and discussions about science related topics. Scientists and other experts in the Free Range Science Q&A will wear t-shirts with “Ask Me About:__________” with the blank filled in with their topic of interest to invite questions and conversation.
