Description:

What is a nurdle and why do we have to patrol it?

Learn what a "nurdle" is and how to find one by attending this educational event on the Day-Use Beach at Mustang Island State Park.

  • Meet on the day-use beach 6pm
  • The class will last about an hour. You'll learn where to look, how to identify nurdles, how to package them, and how easy it is to log your data online using your cell phone.
  • What Exactly Is a Nurdle Again?
    Nurdles are the pre-production plastic (raw material) before being made into a plastic product. They are released into the environment when there is a spill either at the manufacturing facility or at a product facility or during transport on ship, rail, or truck. They are hazardous to wildlife for a number of reasons and are known to absorb harmful chemicals which can be deadly to small birds and sea turtles.
