Musseling on the Merrimack Meander in Concord
At the Concord floodplain Conservation Area, the Merrimack River has a small off-branch known as a “meander.” Throughout this shallow and beautiful section, there are many freshwater mussels, small fish and other aquatic life that are easy to view and explore. Join Linden Rayton, Floodplain Education Coordinator, to cool off at the end of the day and discover all sorts of fun things. We will have nets and tubs to catch and release our findings. Bathingsuits, floaties, snorkels, masks and goggles, and your own nets are all appropriate to bring. There is a 15-minute walk to the river site that travels through many interesting habitats. So come prepared for an afternoon of discovery! Ages 6+. Event is free and limited to 20 people; pre-register using the link below.
