March for Science in NYC: Photos of the Earth Day rally against Trump

Demonstrators marked Earth Day with a march through the streets of Manhattan.

The March for Science, one of several held across the country, was planned as a response to the proposed budget cuts and political appointments of President Donald Trump, marchers said.

Many got creative with their signs, pulling inspiration from the science field itself.

Scroll down for photos from Saturday's march.
