Minnesota Volunteers Search Lakes for Zebra Mussels
Volunteers at Lake Minnetonka near Wayzata, MN have begun using snorkeling and scuba gear to assess the threat the mussels are posing to that area. So far, they've only found young Zebra Mussels in the lake but need to do some further research to make see what has to be done to stop the spread of this aquatic nuisance.
Experts say if the mussels take over Minnesota lakes, we may have to wear shoes to walk on sandy beaches because of the razor sharp shells protecting the mussels. And I think it's safe to say, none of us really want that.
