March for Science | Hawaii
April 22, 2017
Times vary based on location (see below for details).
Join us on Earth Day as we celebrate science as a united, diverse, nonpartisan coalition! The Nature Conservancy is a proud sponsor of March for Science, a worldwide demonstration taking place on Earth Day. Science gives us hope for a better future by providing solutions to the greatest challenges we face – from the changing climate to the destruction of our forests to the overfishing of our oceans. Science inspires us to act by showing us there is a path toward a world where both nature and people can thrive together. And science provides us with the knowledge we need to work together to keep our lands and waters strong, healthy and productive.
In Hawaii, marches and Earth Day events are taking place on O'ahu, Hawai'i island, Maui, Moloka'i, and Kaua'i.
