Forever chemicals, or PFAS, are chemicals used in a wide range of applications. From fire fighting to waterproofing, these chemicals are called forever chemicals because of their extreme persistence and ability to last for thousands of years in the environment. PFAS have been used in Maine for a long time and we are just now starting to understand how harmful these chemicals can be to our farmland and our waterways.
Join Herring Gut Coastal Science Center, Nov. 29, 2022, from 7 - 8 p.m., via Zoom, to hear from speakers Heather Spalding, from Maine Organic Farmers Association, and Ed Friedman, from the Friends of Merrymeeting Bay, for a virtual talk to learn about how these chemicals affect our watersheds and all of us.
