Join the March for Science!

March for Science! Saturday afternoon, April 22, 1 to 4 PM Empire State Plaza, Albany, New York

Science, Not Silence — We Walk Out of the Lab and Into the Streets!

Visit the official March for Science site here.

The March for Science is a celebration of our passion for science and a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. Recent policy changes have caused heightened worry among scientists, and the incredible and immediate outpouring of support has made clear that these concerns are also shared by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. The mischaracterization of science as a partisan issue, which has given policymakers permission to reject overwhelming evidence, is a critical and urgent matter. It is time for people who support scientific research and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted. We are scientists and science enthusiasts. We come from all races, all religions, all gender identities, all sexual orientations, all abilities, all socioeconomic backgrounds, all political perspectives, and all nationalities. Our diversity is our greatest strength: a wealth of opinions, perspectives, and ideas is critical for the scientific process. What unites us is a love of science, and an insatiable curiosity. We all recognize that science is everywhere and affects everyone. Science is often an arduous process, but it is also thrilling. A universal human curiosity and dogged persistence is the greatest hope for the future. This movement cannot and will not end with a march. Our plans for policy change and community outreach will start with marches worldwide and a teach-in at the National Mall, but it is imperative that we continue to celebrate and defend science at all levels - from local schools to federal agencies - throughout the world.

A Note:

Save The Pine Bush is in need of more hike leaders.

For the last few years ; the Save the Pine Bush outing leaders have been Andy Arthur, Claire Nolan and John Wolcott. Our outing events are once a month, always on a Saturday and usually the third or fourth Saturday. We three, however, are not always readily available and we’ve come close to having no hike at all for a given month as happened for the first time ever last month. To prevent this from happening again, we are appealing for more volunteer leaders.

With more leaders we can hopefully have hikes lead by persons with more time and less competing obligations for any given hike date. I and Andy are generally available for going over data about various Pine Bush area and routes. Please e-mail the Newsletter at pinebush@mac.com or call John Wolcott at 465-8930 if you are interested in volunteering for this. Hope to see you out on the trail!

 

Note : There are CDTA localized shuttle buses to several points in the Pine Bush from X Gate’s parking lot and back . Call CDTA for detais if you have not a car or don’t wish to drive one. This is the only use of Crossgates that SPB recommends. For more info Call: 465-8930

 

For hikes in spring, summer & fall:

Take the usual precautions against UV radiation and lyme disease: UV sunglasses, sunscreen, wide brimmed hat, light-colored clothing, long-pants and long sleeves. Show up in the latest environmental style.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Note: Due to the increase in global warming, the winter ski, snow shoe, and skating events of Save the Pine Bush will be listed in reverse of the way they have been announced for the last several years. We cannot respond to the advance of global warming the way that more Ski Resorts in the North East are doing with making more and more artificial snow. Our winter outing events will, now, all be announced simply as a “Hike” with the after thought of skiing or skating or snowshoeing weather permitting.

 


For hikes in spring, summer & fall:

Take the usual precautions against UV radiation and lyme disease: UV sunglasses, sunscreen, wide brimmed hat, light-colored clothing, long-pants and long sleeves. Show up in the latest environmental style.

For bike rides:

We will travel on the streets together, and follow all traffic laws. Please wear a helmet. Please note, all CDTA buses are equipped with bike racks, in case you want to use a bus for part of your trip to and from the beginning and end of the bike ride.
