Region 8 Science Update

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to let you all know about the latest local initiative. This time it is our Scientists who are looking for your support. The member who asked me to post this said “I never thought that we would have to seek support for basic science. I always thought that it was understood, Science is how we build our understanding of the world.” and “Science is not partisan. Protecting our world and the people in it is not a partisan issue.”

Please go out and support your fellow members.  For more information go here:
