Marine Debris in the Great Lakes Display Cards

Across the Great Lakes basin, many educators are interested in the topic of marine debris but lack the resources needed to explore this topic with their students. In partnership with the NOAA Marine Debris Program and the Center for Great Lakes Literacy, a Great Lakes Sea Grant team made up of Ohio Sea Grant, Wisconsin Sea Grant, and Michigan Sea Grant worked to improve access to critical educational resources for Great Lakes educators through the Trash Trunk: a kit for learning about marine debris. This kit includes lesson and activity materials, as well as these display cards with specific, place-based information about marine debris in the Great Lakes.
