Over half of Wisconsin’s 50 native mussel species are listed as species of greatest conservation need. Currently,  there are still many unknowns on where different mussel species live. Join WDNR Conservation Biologist Jesse  Weinzinger and the Discovery Center Water Team to “dive” into the world of mussels. We will start on land with an  introduction to mussels and their identification. We will then cruise the waters of Vance Lake on the Manitowish  River, searching for mussels and learning how to identify them in the field. Participants will meet at NLDC for the  on-land portion before caravanning to nearby Vance Lake. Canoes/PFDs provided, but you are welcome to bring  your own. $30 ($25 members). Register by July 7.
