Log in with Aullwood Audubon for our yearly winter speaker series! The 2021 series, Conservation Champions, takes place online via Zoom and features a great lineup of conservation speakers on Sundays in January and February at 2:30 PM.
On January 10th at 2:30 PM, join Abinash Agrawal, Ph.D., Professor of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Wright State University, for "Risk to Drinking Water by Forever Chemicals, and Mitigation". Per and polyfluoroalkyl substances — also known as PFAS — are a group of manmade chemicals that came into use in the 1950s and 1960s in a wide variety of industries that manufacture products such as nonstick cookware, firefighting foams, fast food wrappers, and microwave popcorn containers. These chemicals are used in literally thousands of products around the globe. In 2016, communities in 27 states discovered that their drinking water was contaminated by PFAS compounds. Learn more about what these compounds are, how they get into our drinking water, and what health risks have been connected to these chemicals.
