The March for Science is on Earth Day, which is the perfect opportunity to highlight the ways that science can help us protect our planet and our birds. Please join us as we celebrate the discoveries that give us cleaner water, cleaner air, and healthier ecosystems for birds and nature.
Join us at the march with your positive, pro-science signs, and any Seattle Audubon gear you choose to wear. March with us for as long as you choose.
Seattle Audubon is also hosting a Sign-Making Party beforehand: Thursday, April 20, 2017 from 4-6PM at Seattle Audubon. RSVP for the sign-making party on Facebook.
Why is Seattle Audubon joining the March for Science?
Seattle Audubon relies on quality, peer-reviewed science to make informed decisions for birds, nature, and our community. Scientific inquiry is essential to our mission, and important to many of our members, volunteers, and community-members.
- Our work to protect endangered species and restore natural spaces in and around Seattle depends on up-to-date, accurate, scientific information.
- Science is the foundation of our environmental education programs, including Nature Camp, classes, and our Master Birder course.
- We engage hundreds of volunteers in our own citizen science projects every year.
