Art and Science on the River: Salt

Saturday, February 24 at 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

Art and Science on the River: Salt Workshop Banner

Come learn about the impacts of salt on the Mississippi River and the surrounding watershed. Did you know that one teaspoon of salt permanently pollutes five gallons of water and salt makes freshwater uninhabitable for many aquatic species?

Artists Kimberly Boustead and Annie Hejny will lead an art-making activity centered around the interaction of salt and water. MWMO staff member Abby Moore will share information about salt pollution in the river and best practices to prevent it.

Participants can take home some interesting salt art as well as tips to share with friends and neighbors for reducing salt use and protecting the river.
