The Baton Rouge Audubon Society monthly meeting will feature a screening of “Plastic Paradise: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch,” about what happens to the large amount of plastic that ends up in oceans.
“Thousands of miles away from civilization, Midway Atoll is in one of the most remote places on earth. And yet it’s become ground zero for The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, siphoning plastics from three distant continents,” according to the documentary’s website.
The program also will include local speakers from PaddleBR, a group that has been working to clean up waterways in the Baton Rouge area with a primary focus on Bayou Fountain and Bayou Manchac.
The program will start at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center’s Education Center. Admission is free for Baton Rouge Audubon Society members and $3 for non-members. People should RSVP by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
