Since its inception nearly a half-century ago, Earth Day has been a time to revere the planet and convey the importance of protecting the environment.

However, the sense of urgency will be kicked up a notch Saturday in Trenton, as a coalition of scientists, educators and other concerned citizens hold the first New Jersey March for Science.

The public is invited to join the march, which begins with a speaking program at 10 a.m. outside the War Memorial, and will then proceed approximately a half-mile to the steps of the State House Annex.

The phrase “Science, not silence,” a key theme of the march, will be plastered across signs carried by participants.

“Like many scientists, I was seeing colleagues who work for the government at the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and Department of Energy being silenced,” said march founder Matthew Buckley, an assistant research professor at Rutgers University specializing in astrophysics and high-energy theory.
