Pop-Up Educational Cleanup Events

Either in-class or Education Delivery Vehicle presentation can range from 30 minutes to one hour, depending on your needs or the bell schedule. It also includes 15-20 minutes of hands-on learning activities. SCH Presentation will focus on defining marine debris, where it comes from, how it affects wildlife and human health, and what we can do about it. Throughout the presentation, Educators will use different types of debris (example: plastiglomerates, microplastics, boluses, fishing gear) to illustrate how plastic affects the environment.

SCH Outreach Events engaged over 30,000 people in 2019.
