Upcoming WORKSHOPS

SUSTAINABILITY SUPERHEROES PRESENTS: SUPERHEROES SAVE THE OCEAN

  • September 8, 2022
  • 5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
  • USF Stavros Center, 4111 USF Willow Drive Tampa

Did you know that one of the greatest threats to our planet is marine debris?  Trash in the ocean impacts our human health, tourism economy, water quality, and wildlife.  It is estimated that 80% of marine debris comes from land-based sources, so tackling our plastic pollution problem begins with us.  Kids have the power to be Sustainability Superheroes by taking action in their communities to remove debris before it enters our waterways.  Just in time for Coastal Cleanup Day, we will provide you with decision making lessons and a variety of Florida-standards-aligned activities to empower your students to help keep their ocean and planet clean and healthy.

The first 30 individuals who register for and attend will be eligible for a $50 stipend.
