Mussels (not the kind you get in the gym!)
Today we had the opportunity to learn about mussels from Mr. Brian Pilarcik. Due to high water levels, we met at a park, where Brian taught us a side of biology that not many of us knew about. We were taught about the multiple different types of mussels and how they affect our environment as well as the French Creek watershed. We learned about how freshwater mussels are actually endangered, which is commonly unknown. Mr. Pilarcik actually brought in multiple examples of mussels he has found in his work.
