F.O.G. Monster Mash Workshop
Saturday, Sept 11, 11 AM – 12 PM
There are monsters lurking in our storm drains! Fats, oils, and grease (F.O.G.) can create beastly blockages in Baltimore’s pipes. Help protect our city’s infrastructure with this fun and creative workshop provided by Blue Water Baltimore. Participants will learn about the negative effects of F.O.G. and how to properly dispose of it by feeding the F.O.G. Monster they create. All supplies are included. Ideal for ages 7+.

About the Partners
Blue Water Baltimore’s mission is to restore the quality of Baltimore’s rivers, streams and Harbor to foster a healthy environment, a strong economy, and thriving communities. Blue Water Baltimore takes a holistic approach to making safe, clean water a reality in Baltimore. Their work includes monitoring water quality and hold polluters accountable; planting trees and replace hard surfaces with gardens; educating residents and students on how to help protect our water; advocating for laws and policies to fix the problems we see firsthand; growing and selling native plants at Herring Run Nursery; and, working hand-in-hand with the communities they serve.
The Baltimore Harbor Waterkeeper team, whose vessel is docked on the BMI’s campus, focuses on protecting and restoring the tidal and nontidal waterways that flow into the Baltimore Harbor and the Patapsco River. They regularly collect data at 49 stations in the Gwynns Falls, Jones Falls, and tidal Patapsco River and advocate for stronger enforcement of our laws for clean water, both locally in the Baltimore area and statewide.
The Baltimore Museum of Industry celebrates the dignity of work, and can provide a forum for exploring such issues as workers’ rights and workplace equity, providing historical context for contemporary issues that impact our community.
