21 E 2nd St.
This program takes a look at the composition of sea water, the various microscopic plankton (plants and animals) that live in the water, and the effects of man-made pollution on the quality of ocean water and the marine animals that inhabit it. Informational handouts will be available to take home for further study. There will also be some surprises from other various local water samples and what you will see in the water! This program is presented by Allison Smith.
