Addressing Marine Debris in This New Norm (Webinar)
July 15, 2020 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
The Southeast Marine Debris Action Plan, Consumer Debris Working Group presents: Addressing Marine Debris in This New Norm. Many of us have had to adjust our work to online platforms and social distancing in this “new normal.” For this webinar, our speakers will discuss how they had to rethink some of their classroom visits, beach cleanups, restaurant reusables, and more.
