March for science

The Palouse is often associated with small town farming life, quiet summer afternoons and quaint downtowns. But tucked in the hills are two land grant universities. Between Washington State University and the University of Idaho, there is a wealth of scientific study, research and development. Little wonder that so many turned out for the March for Science on Saturday, April 22.

Roughly 150 people in Ellensburg were among the thousands who gathered nationwide to celebrate Earth Day and March for Science nationwide Saturday. 

The March For Science in Washington, D.C., is happening this Saturday on Earth Day. Smaller science events are happening across the Northwest -- even in conservative southeast Washington.
