Make a Donation to Restore Native Freshwater Mussels Today!



Mussels are tough little filter feeding animals that are critical to a healthy ecosystem. They filter water and stabilize riverbeds (much like a freshwater coral reef) and improve fish habitat. In Minnesota, 25 of our 48 native mussel species are listed as endangered, threatened, or of special concern. Thank you for supporting this critical work to restore native freshwater mussels to Minnesota's rivers!

To donate by check, make your check out to the Minnesota Zoo Foundation and mail to 13000 Zoo Blvd, Apple Valley, MN 55124.
