March Attendees Learn About Backyard Science

Opportunities to get involved in citizen science are everywhere, including your own backyard, according to speakers at the AAAS teach-in tent that was part of the March for Science festivities in Washington, D.C. on April 22. AAAS, a March for Science partner, was one of more than a dozen organizations that offered a sold-out slate of lectures and activities for those of all ages on the National Mall the morning of the march. From the start, sign-toting, lab-coat-clad children and adults streamed into the tent, quickly filling all the spaces, to hear speakers from SciStarter, the U.S. Geological Survey and the Audubon Naturalist Society discuss topics focused around a “Diversity of Life” theme.

Holdren Outlines Ways to ‘Restore Science to Its Rightful Place’
