[Update: We are so very sad to say that the movie, concert, Lyceum and all public events scheduled for the rest of March have been cancelled due to the public health situation. The Grange is available to our community if the building or our volunteers are needed. We will be here (or anywhere) for our community. Stay in touch here on Facebook or at our website: www.thegrangehall.info.]
The Whallonsburg Grange Lyceum spring series “Hidden in Plain Sight” continues to look at well-known things from unusual angles and examines objects and ideas that are hidden from plain view. The presentation “Microplastics in Lake Champlain” will take place on Tuesday, March 17 at 7:30pm
Microplastics in Lake Champlain
Microplastics, small pieces of plastic less than 5 mm in diameter, are a growing concern in Lake Champlain. Microplastics come from a variety of sources and come in different forms; microbeads are found in some personal care products, microfibers from synthetic clothing, and eroded pieces of material from litter and other human sources. SUNY Plattsburgh professor Danielle Garneau and local educator Elizabeth Lee will present the latest research on the microplastics released into Lake Champlain by water treatment plants and the danger they pose to the lake.
$5 suggested donation; students are always free at the Lyceum. The Whallonsburg Grange Hall is located at 1610 NYS Route 22, in Essex, New York. Visit www.thegrangehall.info for more information.
