WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

A March for Science is scheduled for Saturday - Earth Day - in Wilmington.

After an 11 a.m. rally at Roland Grise Middle School, the march will begin at noon and head to Hugh MacRae Park. Wilmington residents and visitors are invited to participate in the march, which is one of nine marches planned in North Carolina and one of hundreds across the United States.

The March for Science "is the first step of a global movement to defend the vital role science plays in our health, safety, economies, and governments," according to the group's website.
