WED 7PM REFRESHMENTS/7:3OPM PROGRAM THE GREAT ATLANTIC GARBAGE PATCH: WHAT IS IT? HOW DID IT GET THERE? WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT IT? — A plastic bag blows into the Bronx River, and washes into the Long Island Sound—so the story begins. But where does it end, and what’s the impact? Follow the story of the plastic bag as it moves through our neighborhoods and into our oceans. Learn how our garbage is collecting in our oceans, and why a “plastic gyre is dire” not just for fish and sea birds, but for humans as well. Short informational video followed by presentation about the great ocean garbage patches. Program presented in partnership with the Sierra Club Lower Hudson Group; designed for adults and high school students. FREE and handicapped accessible.
