Dive deep into the world of ocean plastic in this garbology workshop which examines our culture by studying the types and amount of trash we produce. Ever wonder how all that plastic actually gets in the ocean? What happens while it’s there and what are we doing to prevent this mess? Learn ways to reduce your plastic footprint with easy zero-waste swaps! Get inspired by the Beach Trash Naturescape Gallery exhibit by artist Suzanna Nickerson and make some of your own by turning trash into treasure!

*Garbology art project to follow the presentation. Make jewelry out of plastic bags! All ages welcome
