Sound science forms the foundation of all our work at the Coalition – and people like you are a key part of that. For example, volunteers in our Baywatchers monitoring program collect important water quality data that we use to advocate for the Bay’s protection and restoration.
The March for Science is a broad, nonpartisan, and diverse coalition of people and organizations who are standing up for science. Like the Coalition, it advocates for evidence-based policymaking, science education, research funding, and inclusive and accessible science.
Here’s how you can get involved and show your support for sound science this Earth Day:
1. Attend a March for Science on Saturday, April 22
The March for Science is taking place on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. However, you don’t have to travel all the way to the nation’s capital to show your support for science. There are more than 500 satellite marches happening around the world – including locally in Falmouth, Boston, and Providence.
If you attend a March for Science in support of Buzzards Bay, we want to know about it! Email us with your photos or use the hashtag #savebuzzardsbay on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook.
2. Make a Buzzards Bay sign for your march
If you’re marching for science, you’ll need a colorful, clever sign that shows your support for science for Buzzards Bay. Here are some sign slogan ideas – borrow one of these or come up with your own!
- Protect our water, secure our future
- Clean and pristine is our ultimate dream
- It’s not rocket science – it’s peer-reviewed science!
- Science creates jobs
- A moment of SCIENCE, please
- The future depends on the actions we take today
- Keep CLEAN WATER and Carry On
3. Voice your support for sound science
One of the most important things you can do is lend your voice in support of science, this month and in the future. We need people like you to stand up for federal science and funding for Buzzards Bay – from innovative grants that fund pollution reductions to the cleanup of toxic pollution from New Bedford Harbor. Without these federal efforts, it would be even more challenging to protect clean water for future generations.
