From 7pm until 8pm

At Nature Learning Center

Jill Emerson, staff scientist at Green Mountain Conservation Group, will talk about how two global issues - climate change and plastic waste - affect us right here in NH.  She will go over the potential impacts of this past summer's flooding, and what proactive steps we can all take to better prepare for future flooding events.  In addition, she will touch upon GMCG's new freshwater microplastics survey program using Nile Red staining and discuss how her group is bringing education about this problem to students across the Ossipee watershed.
