LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Ever since Inauguration Day, Americans of differing views have taken to the streets in marches and rallies. Little Rock joined the latest one on Saturday: The March for Science.

The local version of the march came together thanks to the work of political groups like the Sierra Club, as well as non-political organizations like the Museum of Discovery.

Speakers who focused on Arkansas's important hunting and fishing industry straddled the political divide.

“There are some who can live with wild things and some who cannot, and I cannot,” said Johnny Carrol Sain with the Arkansas Wildlife Federal. “Let's insure that facts based in science lead us through an increasingly politicized minefield of environmental policy.

The march in Little Rock was one of more than 600 around the world.
