During a recent meeting of the Dunkirk-Fredonia branch of AAUW, Dr. Sheri Moore presented the results of the 2012 Plastic Pollution Project on Lake Erie. Moore is an associate professor of chemistry and coordinator of environmental sciences at SUNY Fredonia. She is one of the professors from five different universities who taught the environmental science class in July of 2012 on the tall ship, U.S. Brig Niagara. The U.S. Brig Niagara is the only sailing school vessel in the United States. It served as a classroom for this three-week long class taught on the Great Lakes.
