One event on June 29, 2022 at 8:30 am

| $16

Climb aboard the UGA Marine Education Center and Aquarium’s research vessel, the Sea Dawg, for a morning trawl in Wassaw Sound! Participants will learn how to identify different types of marine life found in tidal rivers while learning about Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant’s new Trawl to Trash program, which is designed to prevent litter from entering the marine environment. The program highlights the negative impacts of marine debris on wildlife and habitats and encourages the use of trawl to trash bags, created from recycled nets on commercial shrimp trawlers, to collect and remove debris from Georgia’s waterways. Participants will learn how to construct their own trawl to trash bags using recycled shrimp net material so that it can be used to collect marine debris along the coast!
