The Count Down is on!!!

SETAC Toronto is fast approaching and we hope to see you there.  There is going to be so much amazing science and some great social and networking events too (https://globe.setac.org/setac-toronto-program/)!
Here are just some examples of opportunities you won’t want to miss:
  1. Community Engagement Event Sunday (12:45 – 4:30) (https://globe.setac.org/community-engagement/)
    If you don’t already know about the Don Mouth Naturalization and Portlands Flood Protection Project you have to check this event out!  The tour of the site offers a chance for the public and SETAC members to interact with the scientists and engineers involved in this 1.2 billion dollar remediation project. SETAC members are needed to mingle with the public and answer questions and talk about their science.  Also there will be various NGOs there talking about the work they’re doing to clean up the shoreline and inform policy regarding microplastics etc.  This event has a $15 USD fee to offset the bus cost and you get a t-shirt to ID you to the public.  You have to register online.  https://toronto.setac.org/scientific-program/social-program/community-engagement/
