Report. River Walk March for Science, Earthday, April 22

April 5, 2017

Thank you one and all for joining the Great Barrington Land Conservancy and River Walk’s March for Science on Saturday, April 22, 2017. It was truly memorable with the Berkshire Stompers’ brass band, scientists, science teachers, young science lovers, and concerned citizens for our planet’s future. Two hundred marchers began at the W.E.B Du Bois River Park, proceeded along Main Street, then returned to our starting point by following the River Walk trail along the Housatonic River. CLICK
