Most of us are familiar with the 3 R’s: reduce, reuse and recycle. It’s time to put the 4th R into action - recreate! Learn about the problem of marine debris as you recreate “greener” holiday treasures from items that would be otherwise recycled or simply thrown away. The goal is to learn while having fun, because together we can make a difference. Join us for some SEAsonal crafts for all ages! Read more about SEAsonal Crafts - Trash2Treasures 12/17/16 10am-noon
