Tens of thousands of people marched world wide to protest recent cuts to science and political resistance to acceptance of scientific facts.

A local event was organized in Rockville Centre at the Tanglewood Preserve’s Center for Science Teaching and Learning.

In addition to a march featuring hand made signs through the nature preserve, there were science exhibits, speakers and live music provided by The Pattersons, Acoustic Dave & Frank Imburgio.

Long Island Activists member Diann Forquignon was a co-organizer of the event. Members Frank Imburgio, Steven Cecchini, Kathy Patterson, Dave Kotlier and Michael Clark volunteered.
