"Smog of the Sea" Film

Join a Park Ranger for a screening of the acclaimed documentary "Smog of the Sea" and discuss the growing problem of plastic pollution in the worlds' oceans. The film is about 30 minutes long and the discussion following the film will be about the same. After watching the film, we will discuss ways you can help reduce plastic and other waste from entering the Atlantic Ocean from the Neuse River watershed. All age groups are invited. All of the programs at William B. Umstead State Park, are free of charge.
