Join Mote Marine Laboratory for an evening at Calusa Brewing for the latest and greatest Mote Science Café! "Marine Debris - More Than What Our Eyes Can See" will feature Mote scientist Kim Bassos-Hull, UF IFAS Extension Sarasota County's Abbey Tyrna and Keep Sarasota County Beautiful's Wendi Crisp.

Have you ever spotted trash on the beach or wondered where all our waste goes? Every day we rely on plastics, wear plastics, wash with plastics, play with plastics, and more! Some of it we can see, some of it we don’t but every piece lives forever on our blue planet. Join us for a conversation about marine debris and how we are making an ever-lasting impact on our world. Learn from our experts about the research they’ve collected and solutions we can encourage locally to make a difference globally!

Great local beer, wine and food truck eats will be available throughout the evening.
This event is FREE to the public.

When: 6 p.m.–7:30 p.m. (doors open at 5:00 p.m.) on Monday, April 16, 2018
Where: Calusa Brewing, 5701 Derek Avenue, Sarasota, FL 34233

Suggested audience: Adults 21 and older. Please note that this program takes place in a bar/lounge and that alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase. The conversation will be geared toward an adult audience.

Science cafes are casual conversations bringing science topics into our communities. The audience is encouraged to ask questions and interact throughout the evening. This is not a lecture, but an interactive conversation.
