Cary Institute in Millbrook Presents "Plastic Pollution in Freshwaters"

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
