Update: April 24, 2017: Thank you to Rita Donham for sharing photos of the March:
Wyoming Aero Photo, as a member of PAPA (Professional Aerial Photographers Association), photographed marchers in Pinedale and Jackson Hole doing the Science March. The PAPA group covered this event across the country for articles in Scientific American and Science Magazine. The Pinedale Marchers started at the American Legion Park, crossing Pine Creek, and made a loop through town on a beautiful spring day.
