The Show Us Your Mussels Challenge

Minnesota High School students create an original digital media campaign informing the public about the impact of water quality on native mussels. The school groups that get the message out to the most people will receive FREE field trips to the Minnesota Zoo including bussing, admission, parking and interactive sessions with our Mussel Conservation staff. If you are interested in participating for the 2018-2019 school year email us at [email protected].
