Join us for a 30 minute powerful documentary about plastic straws and other forms of plastic pollution that inundate our waterways and oceans. The film illustrates how individuals, groups, and businesses around the globe are reducing plastic straw use through education, collaboration, policy development and utilization of non-plastic alternatives. With colorful opening animation narrated by Oscar winner Tim Robbins, STRAWS is entertaining as well as educational.

This is a joint program hosted by Southern Maryland Audubon Society and the Port Tobacco River Conservancy.  The event will also feature our local Ocean Guardian students from J.C. Parks Elementary, further emphasizing the harm plastics are causing to our environment. Information about our recent Charles County ban on plastic straws will also be made available. Light refreshments and mingling start at 7 p.m. Public invited. Free event. Inquiries to Lynne Wheeler at or 301-751-8097 (prefer text).
