Talking Trash at the Forks Library
In September, the Forks Library is offering a new discussion series about something everyone has in common: trash. Talking Trash will feature three engaging discussions that cover a range of waste-related topics, from the challenges of household garbage management to the accumulating debris on area beaches. Led by local and state experts, these discussions will seek to provide creative and practical solutions for reducing waste.
On Sept. 3, Forks Library remodel designer Trisa Katsikapes will offer tips and share ideas for repurposing trash-bound items into home-spun treasures.
The series wraps-up on Sept. 10 with Jon Schmidt, of Washington CoastSavers, who will lead a discussion about the increasing debris on local shores and how to get involved in cleanup efforts. All discussions are free and begin at 6:30 p.m. inside the Forks Library. Pre-registration is not required.
