Earth Day, Every Day Webinar Series: E2D2 In the City! Let’s Stop As-Salt-ing Our Streams: The Impacts of Road Salt on Freshwater
New Jersey is applying more and more salt on its roads every winter – and its freshwaters are becoming saltier too. Join Erin Stretz, Assistant Director of Science at The Watershed Institute and coordinator of the New Jersey Watershed Watch Network, to discover the ecological consequences of road salting on freshwater streams and lakes and how you can help put your watershed on a reduced-sodium diet. You will also learn more about our community science effort to measure chloride levels across the state. Join up and contribute to freshwater salinization research this winter!
Our Earth Day, Every Day webinar series (lovingly called #E2D2) focuses on steps everyone can take to protect the environment. We can all do our part to take actions that make our homes more sustainable, from environmentally-friendly lawn care, to recycling, to conducting a home energy audit.
New this fall… E2D2 in the City!
