      EVENT DETAILS
      Wisconsin’s Mighty Mussels Evening Exploration

      Warty purpleback, monkeyface, and creek heelsplitter sound like kids’ nicknames, but they are just a few of Wisconsin’s 51 species of mussels. Join Lisie Kitchel, Wisconsin Dept. of Natural Resources Conservation Biologist, as she explains how these clam-like animals (bivalves) have truly intriguing life cycles, which include finding host animals for their young. She will share how they have played interesting roles in our past and present economy. Weather permitting, we will go to a local river for a mussel hunt, so bring your water shoes. This exploration is for people over the age of 12 years. Meet at the Ice Age Visitor Center (located at N2875 Hwy 67, Campbellsport - half mile west of Dundee).
