Hundreds of marches are planned across the country in solidarity with the People's Climate March on Saturday in Washington, D.C., one of which is in San Diego.

It will take place on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the downtown San Diego Waterfront Park, 1600 Pacific Highway.

Organizers said they expect more than 3,000 people to attend the San Diego march.
