Marsh Lake Mussel Rescue
August 13, 2018 - August 17, 2018Free
This is going to be an amazing operation to relocate mussels back into the Minnesota River so that they do not die. The Army Corps of Engineers and the DNR are working to return the river to its original channel and there is a stretch that will be redirected and if we don’t remove the mussels – they will die. Mussels are extremely important to the ecology of the river and overall health.
CURE will be given several time slots over the 5 to 7 day period where volunteers will be needed to get in the water and rescue mussels. There is no experience needed, just interest and willingness to help. It is for all ages, abilities and about the only things that make this super challenging is the weather and managing the water levels. If you are interested contact CURE – or 320-269-2984.
