Dear Friends of the Paleontological Research Institution,

On Saturday, April 22nd, 2017, thousands of scientists and supporters of science are expected to attend the March for Science in Washington D.C. and more than 429 satellite marches across the world. Many scientific and educational societies have expressed their intent to participate to address a variety of concerns related to science.

Our Institution’s mission is to increase scientific knowledge, educate society, and encourage wise stewardship of the Earth. We provide and support science education opportunities that encourage everyone to ask questions, think critically, and develop an understanding of the world around them. We believe that every person deserves an education that encourages scientific learning.

With this in mind, the Paleontological Research Institution is planning an active presence at the March for Science in Washington D.C., Ithaca, Buffalo, New York, and additional locations that are still to be determined. We believe our Institution’s presence at the march is essential for promoting science education and for building greater ties with the community we serve. We intend to participate not only to support other scientists like ourselves, but to ensure that scientific knowledge is inclusive and accessible to all.

Additional information about the March for Science is available at www.marchforscience.com. Thank you for supporting our mission. We look forward to advancing science with your support.


Dr. Warren D. Allmon
Executive Director
