Want to learn even more about this incredible freshwater mollusk that calls the Ottawa River watershed its home? Well you’re in luck!
Dr André Martel from the Canadian Museum of Nature, along with volunteer diver Nancy Binnie, will be joining Ottawa Riverkeeper to give a presentation on their work researching the Hickorynut, an endangered freshwater mussel found in the Ottawa River. Since 2014, Nancy and André have been conducting underwater surveys to investigate the occurrence of the Hickorynut in the river. It is through this work that they were able to establish that the Ottawa River hosts Canada’s largest population density of Hickorynut!
