Yesterday, the Odum School of Ecology hosted a Plastic Debris Workshop in conjunction with the River Basin Center and the UGA Marine Extension/Georgia Sea Grant. The workshop began with a panel discussion about the causes and consequences of plastic debris and how we as individuals can contribute to protecting our water resources.  The panel discussion was followed by a reception with artwork, posters, and tables from undergraduate researchers, UGA student organizations, community organizations. EcoReach members Kelsey and Nate had a great time spreading the word about EcoReach to workshop attendees, as well as networking to get new ideas for activities and curriculum!
The workshop was organized by EcoReach’s very own, Rebecca Atkins! Great job, Rebecca!
