The March for Science on Earth Day (April 22) will be the culmination of a group of scientists to publicly advocate for evidence-based policymaking, science education, research funding, and inclusive and accessible science.

This aligns with aspects of the mission of the Kentucky Academy of Science by encouraging scientific research, advancing science education based on the standards of our scientific community, promoting the use of sound science in policy initiatives, and unifying the scientific interests of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
