Plastic Pollution in the Great Lakes
Did you know that more than 75 percent of the trash volunteers removed from Great Lakes beaches and shorelines last year was made of plastic? That is why our friends at the Alliance for the Great Lakes helped create a traveling exhibit that shows the harmful effects of plastic pollution on our oceans and lakes—and some inspiring solutions. Experience the exhibit, hear a panel discussion on local cleanup programs and
see a presentation on Great Lakes plastic pollution.
When: 6 PM - 9 PM
Where: Cranbrook Institute of Science, 39221 Woodward Ave., Bloomfield Hills, MI
