Water Pollution & Your Planet

August 20 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

We use water everyday for so many things, but do we really know how it gets polluted? Do we know how we can protect it & make a difference?

Clean water is something that we all depend on daily for our hygiene, sanitation, nourishment, recreation and aesthetic enjoyment. Pollution of our waters have significant consequences that impact us all.

Join engineer and former NJDEP compliance officer Joseph Mikulka as he introduces you to the basic concepts of water pollution. You will gain an understanding of its sources, its impacts on aquatic biota and public health, how it is regulated, how it can be prevented, and most importantly, what you can personally do the help protect our waters.

This ecological learning event is for all ages, and all children must be accompanied by adults at all times.

The Friends of the New Jersey School of Conservation is a U.S. tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization. When NJSOC closed in July 2020, the Friends launched a campaign to save it. This ultimately led to negotiations with the NJ Department of Environmental Protection, owners of NJSOC, to obtain an interim management agreement for the School. This agreement was finalized in April 2021, and the Friends of NJSOC are proud to offer limited programming at NJSOC with the help of dedicated and talented volunteers. We are pleased to register you for one of our programs!
