Although Old Faithful’s eruptions remain consistent, America's support for funding scientific research is wavering. That's why I went to Old Faithful on Saturday, to table at the March for Science in Yellowstone. More than 100 people showed up -- including nearly 30 students from Minnesota who'd taken a bus here just for this event.
Standing at Old Faithful, it occurred to me that this moment was possible because those before me had the foresight to create a park, so that future generations would be able to enjoy this natural wonder.
Old Faithful is a symbol of conservation. And it's also a symbol of science, and those who have the foresight to invest in and fund research so that future generations can live better, healthier lives.
