“Plastic Waters” Exhibit August 2nd – August 26th

The Lake Erie Seaway Trail Visitor Center is pleased to announce the arrival of a unique exhibit that shows in graphic form the harmful effects of plastic pollution in our oceans and lakes and the inspiring solutions that can sustain these waters.

“Plastic Waters: From the Great Lakes to the Oceans”

“A unique exhibit that shows in graphic form the harmful effects of plastic pollution in our oceans and lakes” 

Was designed to educate communities around the Great Lakes region about the ecological impact of plastic pollution, and offer solutions by using an eclectic collection of artifacts from around the world.  Combing art and science, the exhibit is a unique and sometimes surprising display that tells the story of our plastic-infested waters.
