Caring for the Great Lakes with Liz Sutton
October 14 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Do you know the scope of the plastic pollution in the Great Lakes? We are lucky enough to live on one of the largest freshwater sources in the world yet half of all plastic waste in the Great Lakes is in Lake Michigan. Learn about the problem of plastics in our own backyard and what we can do to help fix it.
The School of Freshwater Sciences at UW-Milwaukee is the first school in the nation dedicated solely to the study of freshwater and is a launch pad for critical and fascinating freshwater research. For more than 50 years, the faculty and scientists have been conducting internationally recognized freshwater research across four essential themes: human and ecosystem health, freshwater system dynamics, freshwater technology, and freshwater policy and economics.
