Sean Reese, of Bucknell University, lead a Floating Classroom program all about freshwater mussels on Sept. 27, 2022, with more than 50 people attending the cruise.
On the lower level of the Hiawatha Paddleboat, Sean discussed the importance of mussels in our waterways as a natural filtration process as well as some of the species' trends and threats they face.
On the upper level, Riverkeeper John Zaktansky used a mussels and snails trivia program to discuss the various species, looking at concerns of invasives and other issues.
