A visitor to the Grand Rapids area has a story to tell about her recent kayak trip down the Mississippi River. Alyssum Pohl paddled solo from Lake Itasca, the source of the Mississippi, to the Gulf of Mexico, documenting plastic waste and water quality along the way.

Prior to her latest adventure, Pohl worked for several years for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, where she studied the changes in the ocean due to climate change and plastic pollution.

* Learn more about plastic waste in our oceans and waterways and the difference you can make;
* Hear her seven top take-away lessons,
* Enjoy the sights she saw and laugh along with her stories of adventure, trials and tribulations.

This is an inspiring story of fortitude and pluck that you won’t want to miss!

Earth Circle will sponsor Pohl’s presentation on Tuesday, 8/9/16, at 7 p.m. in the Community Meeting Room at the Grand Rapids Library. This event is free and open to all.

A free will donation will be taken to support Pohl’s further research.
