Plastics in Streams (Education Program)
February 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST
Plastic pollution in the world’s oceans has been publicized widely; we’ve heard about the “Great Pacific Garbage Patch.” Lesser known is the prevalence of microplastics in freshwater systems, which are conduits from land to the sea. Dr. Sherri Mason (Sustainability Coordinator at Penn State Erie and plastic pollution researcher) will present an overview of what plastic is, its proliferation in our society, and its emergence as one of the most prominent environmental pollutants. Join us for this virtual education program!
