Freshwater Mussels on a Rock
West Branch Library
Premiers: 
Monday, December 6 at 7:00 pm

Over half of Indiana's 79 freshwater mussel species are listed on the national Species of Greatest Conservation Need list by the U.S. Geological Survey. Over-harvest, habitat alteration and degradation, water quality issues, and the impacts of non-native species have all contributed to the decline of native mussels. Strategies now being employed for restoration of several of Indiana's rarest species include adult relocation, in situ cage culture, and captive rearing. These current techniques and future management strategies will be discussed.

Non-point source pollution occurs across our landscapes and is mobilized by stormwater that runs across the land surface. These pollutants then make their way to receiving water bodies, decreasing the water quality of lakes and rivers. Learn how stream rehabilitation techniques can be implemented to reduce the amount of non-point source pollutants entering our natural water bodies.

Between the end of the Civil War and the beginning of World War I, steamboat traffic on the Wabash River at Terre Haute expanded dramatically, helped by interventions from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The commercial boom was accompanied by an extensive houseboat community along the city's waterfront, widespread leisure boating, and a community of people living on the river bank-all roughly in the area of today's Fairbanks Park.
