Plastic Pollution in Freshwaters

Plastic Pollution in Freshwaters
On Friday, August 17 at 7 pm, join the Cary Institute for a special presentation by Loyola University aquatic ecologist Timothy Hoellein.

Did you know that most of the plastic polluting our oceans was swept downstream by rivers? Hoellein will discuss the ecology of plastic garbage – including its production, disposal,
and accumulation in the environment.

Learn about the biological impacts of plastic pollution in freshwaters, how it degrades ecosystems, and tools being developed to prevent the problem.

The event will be held in the Cary Institute auditorium. Registration for general admission
is required; seating is first come, first served.
