Nature Nights: A Closer Look at Microplastics Online

When: Wed., Jan. 27, 7 p.m.
Price: Free

The large majority of plastic pollution, which is found in oceans, rivers and streams, and on land, is comprised of tiny particles and fibers smaller than five millimeters in size. It breaks down from larger plastic debris and is even shed from our clothing. Many of these microplastics are so small that they cannot be seen without a microscope. Join Deschutes Land Trust and Dr. Susanne Brander of Oregon State University to explore the tiny world of microplastics, including how these miniscule particles are detected and their potential effects on the natural world. Dr. Brander will also offer ideas about what we can do to stem the plastic tide.
