The Day of the March

WHAT TO EXPECT

Parking

There is parking at San Pedro Springs Park near the San Pedro Playhouse. We are working on securing additional parking in the area.

Accessibility

The march itself will be along the streets, sidewalks, and parking lots in the immediate area, and is less than two miles total. That said, please do not overexerte yourself. The science showcase and featured speakers will take place in the park, specific location TBD. Our goal is for this march to be as accessible as safely possible.

Route

We will march from the center of the park, across San Pedro Ave. and along E. Dewey Place, turn right at N. Main Street and march down to W. Evergreen, turn right on Maverick Street towards San Antonio College, march past W. Park Ave and through the Scobee Planatarium parking lot, turning left towards San Pedro Ave. just past the tennis courts, cross San Pedro Ave. again to W. Myrtle St and back into the park near the south end of the springs, and around back to the center, near the gazebo for the Science Showcase.

Science Showcase

Apply to be a scientist in our Science Showcase! Calling scientists of all ages. Would you like to share your passion for science with others? Talk about your research or favorite invertebrate? Network, mix, and mingle with other science fans and professionals of all ages (or stand akwardly by your poster, that's totally cool, too). We are accepting applications for a poster showcase, open to all local aspiring and professional scientists of all ages. There is a limited number of spaces available.

Energy

This march has created a very diverse coalition of individuals. The energy will be super high, please be respectful to others as well as to our San Antonio streets.
