Scientists: Why I Marched

In honor of the March for Science and Earth Day. “Why I marched,” in the Women’s March. Thank you all for sharing photos and words.

Evolution in a toxic world

Below is a collection of images from scientists who marched somewhere in the country on January 21, 2017. I had asked for a photo and a few words. Thank you to all who contributed. It’s nice to be in such good, positive company, these days. Feel free to send your photo and thoughts, and I will add them.


Here’s a photo of 6 scientists marching in Helena, Montana (pop. 30,000) with 10,000 fellow marchers (1 of every 100 Montanans!), at 19 degrees F.  I am a hydrogeologist. With me in this photo are a wetland scientist/biologist, a fluvial geomorphologist, a restoration hydrologist, another hydrogeologist, and a freshwater researcher and educator.  We’re part of a larger Montana group called the Water Babes, which until now focused on mentoring and networking.  This is our first political action, and it happened organically.  No one declared, “the Water Babes must march.”  We just did.
