Marvelous Mussels - Rescheduled from December 2

Wait did that rock just move? No, it’s a mussel! Over 50 species of mussels call Minnesota’s waters home, but most of these species are threatened or even endangered. Join Park Naturalist Elizabeth as she explores these little-known creatures that have a big impact on water quality. They are simply marvelous. Stop by the main floor any time between 2:00 and 3:30 to learn about mussels. 

This event is part of We Are Water MN, a traveling exhibit and community engagement initiative that explores the science, history, story, culture, and relationships of water in Minnesota, and, in this case, the lower St. Croix River Valley. The exhibit will be on view at Stillwater Public Library from October 12 through December 3, 2023. We Are Water MN is led by the Minnesota Humanities Center in partnership with the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency; Board of Water and Soil Resources; the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, Health, and Natural Resources; the Minnesota Historical Society; and the University of Minnesota Extension. We Are Water MN is funded in part with money from the Clean Water, Land, & Legacy Fund and by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
