Presentation–Plastics in the Environment

The news today is full of stories about microplastics. What are these plastics? Where do they come from? Why are people concerned about them?

Dr. Maia McGuire will give a talk about plastics in the environment as part of the City of Palm Coast’s Birds of a Feather Festival. This will be a “Lunch and Learn” event from 11:30 am to 1 pm on February 8th at the Palm Coast Community Center. The event is free, and lunch will be provided, but pre-registration is required.

Dr. McGuire is the UF/IFAS Extension Sea Grant agent for Flagler County. Since 2015, she has been coordinating the Florida Microplastic Awareness Project.
