Plastics in the Great Lakes

From July 09, 2018 6:30 pm until 7:30 pm
Categories: Adult events

Marine debris is defined as any persistent solid material that is disposed or abandoned in the marine or aquatic environment. It is a global problem – there is no part of the world left untouched by debris and its impacts. Marine debris is a threat to our environment, navigation safety, the economy, and human health. One type of marine debris of particular concern – plastics - is among the most common type and can be a serious threat to the biota of the water body.

The good news is marine debris is preventable! Anne Moser of the Wisconsin Water Library will provide an introduction to the science of plastics in our Great Lakes and learn ways you can prevent it.

The program is free and open to all, and light refreshments will be served. For more information, call the Mercer Library at 715-476-2366.
