OCT 26: Charles Moore To Speak Again in Friday Harbor, WA

OCT 26: Charles Moore To Speak Again in Friday Harbor

Note Correction: Talk is at 7:30 pm, (not 7 pm as originally noted.)

Noted marine researcher Charles Moore will give a talk on “Combating the Oceans’ Plastic Plague,” at the San Juan Community Theater on Tuesday, October 26, at 7:30 pm. Two years ago Doris Estabrooks, the Friday Harbor resident who spearheaded the successful crusade to ban polystyrene food containers in San Juan County, arranged Captain Moore’s first appearance in the islands. She has convinced him to return and speak again since, as Doris noted, “passing the ordinance has not made the plastics problem go away.”

Because Doris, who is passionate about this issue, wants as many people to attend Moore’s lecture as possible, there will be no admission charge. But at the same time, she is working hard to cover all the costs of his visit. Donations are still very much needed and appreciated.

Checks (which are tax-deductible,) should be made out to Moore’s organization, Algalita Marine Research Foundation, and mailed in care of: Doris Estabrooks, 2143 Cattle Point Road, Friday Harbor, 98250.
