A Plastic Handbasket
Plastics have revolutionized our way of life but also have a devastating effect on our planet. In honor of World Migratory Bird Day’s 2019 theme, “Protect Birds: Be the Solution to Plastic Pollution,” we will explore the complexities of plastics and ways that you can help! Learn about inspiring solutions that are beginning to address this problem. After the lecture, we will head outside to look for some of the birds we are hoping to protect.
Plastic, Plastic Everywhere
While the adults listen to a lecture about the dangers of plastic pollution, we will get our hands dirty cleaning it up! In this active investigation, collect plastic objects, sort them, and figure out why they are bad to leave behind. Then we will work together to turn plastic trash into art! After the program, we will meet the adults for a walk through the woods.
