Join the Niantic Bay Sailing Academy “Green Crew” as we host the Mystic Aquarium for two education events in June to get us all thinking a little more GREEN!
Plastic pollution is found in almost every marine habitat around the world, even in our very own Niantic Bay. Mystic Aquarium will join us to explore how macro and micro plastics enter the waterways and the impact of plastics on local species. You will take away both individual and collective actions that will help reduce additional plastic pollution.
Mystic Aquarium will be joining us first on Wednesday, June 26th, to get our younger crew excited about the environment! This event will take place at 12:00pm between the morning and afternoon sailing programs. This program is free for all young NBSA participants, NBYC members and friends. Please bring lunch or order lunch from the Slipper Shell.
On Thursday, June 27th at 5:30 pm, adults will have an opportunity to mingle, eat, drink, and Go Green as the NBSA, in collaboration with Mystic Aquarium, hosts an educational cocktail reception featuring beer tasting by Noble Jay Brewing Company, as well as appetizers from Flanders Fish, White Gate Farm, Mystic Oysters, and other community partners. There will be a chance to do a little “green” shopping with Nurture Nest and Sign Craft. With a focus on reducing single use plastics, BE SURE TO BRING YOUR FAVORITE REUSABLE DRINKING VESSEL!! All NBSA parents, NBYC members, and friends are welcome. A suggested donation of $10 will help support the NBSA sailing programs.
See you there!
