Wildlife & Ecology Lecture: Talking Trash with Ecomaine

Join us at the Main Library on Thursday, February 20 at 6:30 pm for the next presentation in our next Wildlife & Ecology Lecture Series, Talking Trash with Ecomaine, presented by Katrina Bussiere-Venhuizen.

Is it possible to make simple daily reuse and recycling choices to save money, care for the environment, and also help those around you, including future generations? Learn ways to think differently, change your habits, become more ecologically-mindful, and adopt a variety of thrifty, “use this, not that” options for a greener life.

And where does your recycling actually go, once brought to curb or transported to the transfer station?  You’d be surprised about what those recycled materials can be turned into, afterwards. Watch a fascinating virtual tour of ecomaine’s recycling and trash-to-energy plants?  Learn how not to be a “wish-cycler’, and why knowing what items can be recycled and what cannot – matters now more than ever!  Take home info to help you recycle at home like a pro as well as some fun free stuff!  Bring your curiosity and questions!
