Mussel monitors search for mussel species from June through September. Monitors follow a protocol to take pictures of any mussel species they find in the Milwaukee River Basin and send those pictures to Milwaukee Riverkeeper staff. Milwaukee Riverkeeper staff then works with WDNR to identify and track the species.
Where is the Mussel Monitoring Program taking place?
Mussel Monitors have the opportunity to explore all parts of the Milwaukee River Basin. Below are locations where currently participating Mussel Observers and Mussel Searchers can survey for mussels.
