Event description

Description

Join local experts as we learn about marine trash in the Gulf of Mexico, its impacts on wildlife and coastal habitats, and actions we can take to reduce our footprint. Class agenda includes an introduction to Weeks Bay Reserve and boat trip on the bay, an overview of marine debris and current marine debris projects in the Gulf, hands-on analysis of water samples to view microplastics, and information on citizen science monitoring of microplastics in the Gulf. This class is FREE and open to all groups; however, because of the boat trip, we ask participants be high school age and above. Lunch and snacks will be provided. All participants will receive a reusable bag and water bottle.
