Zoom Cafe- NKY Forum: Earth Day: Mussel Strength with Dr. Monte McGregor
Thursday, April 22, 2021
For Earth Day 2021, the Northern Kentucky Forum invites you to learn about the Licking River’s amazing mussel population. If you’ve paddled the river, you’ve probably seen shells along the shore. That’s no coincidence. The Licking is renowned among biologists as a mussel habitat. Nationally acclaimed mussel biologist Dr. Monte McGregor will explain why the Licking’s mussels matter and what we can and should do to protect them.
RSVP to nkyforum.org is required to receive Zoom link.
Note: Before COVID, the Forum hosted café events that included free morning coffee in person with local civic and thought leaders. This Zoom event is designed to replicate that as best we can. So, grab a cup of coffee or tea as you tune in. Attendees will receive a voucher for a free cup of coffee at Roebling Point Books & Coffee in Covington … and a coupon celebrating Earth Day (April 22) for 22% off a book.
