Join the Buzzards Bay Coalition and the New Bedford Whaling Museum for a series of three evening lectures about the work being done to restore and maintain the Buzzards Bay watershed.

Restoring Water Quality

Rachael Miller, Co-founder and Executive Director, The Rozalia Project for a Clean Ocean
Marine debris has created three new oceanographic features in urban and coastal waters. Learn how Rozalia Project is using innovative technology and solutions-based research to clean ocean trash from surface to seafloor.

George Heufelder, Director, Barnstable County Dept. of Health & Environment
Municipalities are struggling to stem the flow of human-produced nutrients into our shared groundwater, ponds, bays and estuaries. Heufelder will explain how the country’s largest testing center for septic system alternatives is “looking for better mousetraps for treating wastewater.”

This event begins with a reception at 6pm, followed by lectures beginning at 6:30pm.

Cost: $5 for New Bedford Whaling Museum or Buzzards Bay Coalition members; $10 for non-members
