Freshwater Mussel Identification Workshop
Wednesday, May 31, 2023 | 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm$20.00 – $30.00
Wisconsin has 50 different species of native freshwater mussels within its rivers, and monitoring of these unique species is crucial to the health of our freshwater ecosystems. In this workshop presentation, participants will discover the dynamic history of freshwater mussels in Wisconsin, their unique life cycles, and the status of mussel populations in Wisconsin. You will get a hands-on tutorial on how to identify common mussel species found in the Milwaukee River and how to individually participate in a state-wide citizen science project monitoring mussel populations.
