Making Waves in Colorado
Free Public Symposium
Sunday, November 13, 2011
Boulder Public Library
1001 Arapahoe Ave., Boulder
1:00 – 5:00 pm
This event will feature Dr. Sylvia Earle, dubbed “Her Deepness” by the New York Times, “a Living Legend” by the Library of Congress, and “Explorer in Residence” by the National Geographic Society. Sylvia will help us celebrate the one-year anniversary of the Colorado Ocean Coalition, an organization protecting oceans from a mile high.
Join Dr. Earle, Jim Toomey (cartoonist of Sherman’s Lagoon), David Helvarg (author of 50 Ways to Save the Ocean), Dan Basta (Director of NOAA’s National Marine Sanctuary Program) and other guests from around the country. Panels and presentations will examine marine protected areas, environmental impacts of plastics, oceans and climate change, and the relationship between land use and watersheds.
Teens4Oceans and Keep it Clean will be offering programs for youth of all ages throughout the event. Teacher workshops by the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) and Google will be held. Organizations will be disseminating information throughout the library on subjects ranging from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch to what Coloradans can do to protect our oceans.
