How much plastic is in the Chesapeake Bay?

Event Date:  October 13, 2015 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm Join Trash Free Maryland and Annapolis Green for a presentation on plastic pollution in our local waters. The recent 15-day Chesapeake Bay Trash Trawl found plastic in all 60 samples collected throughout the Maryland portion of the Bay. Find out what this means for public health, the health of the Bay, and what can you do about this toxic pollution that has already entered the world food chain?
