The Post Bulletin caught our Senior Biologist, Brett Ostby, in the Zumbro River as he relocated state-threatened mussels from a construction site.
KSMQ Public Television is pleased to present: Let's Go, Minnesota!
If you love to hike, bike, paddle, climb, or anything else in the great outdoors of Minnesota, join host Brenda Piekarski as she leads a team of adventurers down rivers, up cliffs and across prairies!
Colleagues of the Clinch Powell Clean Rivers Initiative (CPCRI) Science Team published a series of articles on the connections between water quality, habitat and mussels in the Clinch River. This work was the product of several years of meetings, research and writing, but by no means the end of our work to restore this globally significant natural resource.
We have been collaborating with Conservation Fisheries Inc. to develop an innovative monitoring plan for the Yellowfin Madtom in the Clinch River. This approach will utilize occupancy modeling approaches to detect changes in number of habitats occupied upstream and downstream of a permitted wastewater treatment plant outfall.
Brett Ostby was elected Chair of the Board for the Zumbro Watershed Partnership (ZWP) this spring. The ZWP is a non-profit group that works with citizens and elected officials to protected habitat, improve water quality and mitigate extreme hydrological events in the Zumbro River and its tributaries.

We have been working with Rochester Artist, Sandy Hokanson, to design a series of native mollusk and fish images to promote Daguna Consulting, LLC.
