Zebra Mussels found on Big Muddy

In the past several months, Missouri Dept. of Conservation biologists and Missouri River Relief volunteers have zebras confirmed three sightings of zebra mussels on the lower Missouri River within the state of Missouri. The sightings were at Kansas City, Chamois and Eagle Bluffs Conservation Area.
