The Splash Trash Tour is coming to Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve for two weeks in February

The Splash Trash Tour is coming to Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve for two weeks in February. Don't miss your chance to take a closer look at artist Bette Booth’s creative work made from beach trash. Booth transformed recovered beach trash into a travelling gallery of charming artwork and an interactive hands-on exhibit about trash in our oceans and what we can do to make a difference.

The exhibit is open at the ANERR Nature Center from Feb. 1-11 during Reserve hours. If you feel inspired by the artwork, be sure to stop by on Saturday, Feb. 4 for our Splash Trash Family Event, where you can speak with the artist and make your own trash art.

On Feb. 8, from 2-3 p.m., there is a Special Reserve Wednesday Talk.

As a representative of the 5 Gyres Institute and a professional environmental communicator, Booth will also give a special talk on Feb. 8 on the status of plastic trash in our oceans and what can we do to make a difference. She created the Splash Trash Tour to bring awareness and action around this pressing issue.

Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve Nature Center is located at 108 Island Drive in Eastpoint.

The exhibit and special events are all free and open to the public.
