Meetings on invasive mussels scheduled

In October 2016, aquatic invasive mussel larvae were detected in Tiber Reservoir and suspected in Canyon Ferry Reservoir. Please join your local Conservation District for a series of public meetings to find out what this means for Central and Eastern Montana. All meetings will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. at the following locations:

• May 15 at the Eagles Club in Lewistown 

• May 16 at the Great Northern Lodge Room in Malta

• May 17 at the Fort Peck Interpretive Center in Fort Peck

• May 18 at the Summit Corral in Jordan

It’s not just a boater/recreation problem, it’s a Montana problem, and there are ways that ag producers, recreationists, and all citizens can help to keep our water resources free from this invasive species. Find out what threats these mussels pose, how they can impact your community and way of life, and how you can do your part to prevent their spread in Montana. For more information call your local Conservation District office or Rachel Frost at (406) 454-0056.
