NATURE Lab Workshop with Kayla Coldsnow: Waste Compost
December 3, 2019 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm EST
Come learn about where our waste comes from, the issues associated with it, and how to reduce it! We will talk about refusing, reducing, reusing, recycling, and composting. Techniques will span from cheap or even money saving to expensive, easy and sometimes easier to hard, and from no to large effects on your health. There will be an apartment-style worm composting bin present to see as well. Kayla Coldsnow is a 5th year biology Ph.D. student at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Her research investigates the many ways humans are impacting our vital freshwater ecosystems, including a variety of contaminants and invasive species. In addition to her research, Kayla also loves to complete STEAM outreach with a variety of organizations including NATURE Lab. At NATURE Lab, she has held workshops that focus on freshwater ecosystems, careers involving STEAM, composting, and our waste.
