Mark your calendars for the 2018 WaterWatch Lecture Series. Join us every Wednesday night for a free public lecture series featuring world renowned authors, scientists and historians focused on the nature and human history of New England waters. This year’s highlights include; Reeling in Striped Bass: Conserving this Historic and Economically Vital Fish, Portland Gale – 120th Anniversary of a Super Storm, and Taking Action on Plastic Bag Use.

March 7:  Panel Discussion: Taking Action on Plastic Bag Use
Janis Owens (Duxbury), Jeanne Ryer (Marshfield) and Ken Stone (Plymouth)

This panel of community advocates will describe their efforts on the South Shore to build support for banning the use of plastic bags. Bans have been passed in Plymouth (October, 2016) and Duxbury (March, 2017) and efforts are underway to put it before Marshfield Town Meeting in 2018. Also featured will be excerpts from “Bag It: The Movie”, the highly praised documentary about an “everyman” whose pledge to stop using plastic bags at the grocery store completely changed his life.

In partnership with North and South River Watershed Association, MassAudubon – South Shore Sanctuaries and South Shore Natural Science Center.

Sponsored by:  Clean Harbors, Rockland Federal Credit Union, Mass Cultural Council, and Marshfield, Norwell, Pembroke and Scituate Cultural Councils
