Pollution Solutions is a program designed by the Macatawa Area Coordinating Council to inspire action through access to quality science.  A virtual series focused on plastic pollution and the Great Lakes will be offered free to the public in 2022. Each session will include a guest speaker. 

  • Part 1 will discuss the history of plastic in our Great Lakes, ecological science, and Great Lakes activism in our region through the 1970’s.
  • Part 2 will discuss threats to Great Lakes ecosystems and how they impact specific groups dependent upon Lake Michigan. 
  • Part 3 will inspire a call to action by sharing what future projections look like for plastic pollution in the Great Lakes based on current human impacts, and offering solutions for a pollution solution.

The series will take place in February and March 2022. Specific dates will be announced soon.

This series is presented by the Lakeshore Cleanup Coalition
