Free Our Seas and Beyond recently hosted an Environmental Art Festival at the Carpenter House. A group of artists provided exhibits and while non-profit organizations were on site promoting the importance of caring for ocean life.
Manon Wiese co-chaired the Festival and is very concerned about the state of the oceans. She’s leading an effort to get rid of single-use plastic items. Liz Forde, a member of Free Our Seas and Beyond stressed it is important to bring awareness of the problem of plastic debris in the ocean and the beaches.
There was a large beach cleanup event early during the event. Those who came could also see Captain, a rescued sea turtle that lives in pool at the Carpenter House.
