Plastics in the Great Lakes presentation on July 12

The Minocqua Public Library welcomes Anne Moser, senior special librarian at UW-Madison Aquatic Sciences Center, for a special program at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 12.

Moser will speak on "Plastics in the Great Lakes." She will provide an introduction to the science of plastics in the Great Lakes and discuss ways we can keep these lakes healthy.

According to Moser, marine debris is defined as any persistent solid material disposed or abandoned in the marine environment. It is a global problem - there is no part of the world left untouched by debris and its impacts. Marine debris is a threat to the environment, navigation safety, the economy and human health. Plastics are of particular concern because they are among the most common type of debris and can be a serious threat to the biota of the water body.

This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. For more information, call the library at 715-356-4437. Library hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Fridays, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays.
