In solidarity with the national March for Science and Earth Day, join us for a 1.5 mile walk and group aerial photo on the Bay Trail, which is projected to be underwater by 2050 due to sea level rise.
The March for Science demonstrates our passion for science and sounds a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. Recent policy changes have caused heightened worry among scientists. The incredible and immediate outpouring of support has made clear that these concerns are also shared by the support of hundreds of thousands of people around the world.
