Science for Citizens: Reducing Plastic Waste and Pollution - Cancelled

March 31, 2020 7:00pm to 8:00pm iCal Google Calendar
This event has been cancelled.  ​

 

We’re all used to disposal plastic, but some of it ends up in our streams, rivers, the Chesapeake Bay, and ultimately the ocean, harming the wildlife and sealife. CBL scientists partnered with restaurants on Solomons Island and with the Calvert and St. Mary’s County Public Middle Schools to work together on reducing plastic waste and pollution. In this talk, Dr. Bailey will explain how businesses are “making the switch” from common single-use, petroleum-based plastics to alternative products, how scientists are working with schools, and how YOU can help! 

Where: CBL’s Bernie Fowler Lab, 142 Williams Street, Solomons, MD 20688. View a campus map.
Cost: Free. No pre-registration necessary. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Who: Members of the general public. No scientific background needed; everyone is welcome!
Why: Learn something new and interesting while celebrating science on scenic Solomons Island

This seminar is presented as a part of the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory’s Science for Citizens Seminar Series.  These public seminars invite the community to discover how our scientists are developing new approaches to solving the environmental challenges facing Southern Maryland, our nation, and the world.
