Mussel workshop

One event on July 31, 2021 at 9:00 am

Be a part of a research project in the Sugar River! As part of a grant from the Wisconsin Citizen-based Monitoring Partnership Program, USRWA and Wisconsin DNR are hosting a mussel workshop. During this workshop, attendees will learn about the ecology of mussels, identification of different mussel species, and field exercises to help survey mussels in their natural habitat.

This workshop is a follow-up to our September 2017 event when we relocated 400 Plain Pocketbook mussels into the Sugar River. Our goal is to survey how many of those original 400 mussels are still there, and how they’ve progressed. This is a wonderful activity for all ages and abilities. A light dinner and beverages will be provided! Water is generally 2-3 feet deep in the sections we are targeting, so high boots/waders or quick-drying shorts are encouraged. Some additional pairs of waders will be available for people to use.
