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! Come hear an introduction to the science of plastics in our Great Lakes and learn ways you can prevent it.” Don’t miss this FREE educational program.  Additional parking is available at the town hall.
