River Event

August 13 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Our annual mussel and fish survey is back as we will again explore the river for a hands-on learning opportunity about the Mackinaw River’s amazing aquatic diversity at ParkLands’ Chinquapin Bluffs Land & Water Reserve.  Yes, we’ll find mussels, but we’ll also find darters, microinvertebrates, macroinvertebrates, and more.   This is an event for all ages!

ParkLands volunteers will lead a 0.5 mile hike to the river, where guests will then wade into the water guided by local stream ecologists in two groups; one surveying mussels and the other, fish.  A shuttle will also be available.

Registration coming soon!
