MOORHEAD-Hundreds of people took a stand for science in Moorhead on Saturday, April 22.

Almost 200 people gathered at the Minnesota State University Moorhead campus for a local version of the March for Science, events held across the U.S. to opposes policies of President Donald Trump, such as climate change denial, that critics see as anti-science.

Put on by five different student organizations, marchers participated in a teach-in on the importance of science and then marched to Veteran's Memorial Bridge. Participants highlighted the role science plays in everyday health, safety, economics and our government.

"With so much emphasis on alternative facts and fake news, it's important to be able to weed out what's real and what's actually happening. And the truth behind everything and to make sure the science is being heard," said Clare Palmer, a march organizer.
