The National Park Service Wild and Scenic Rivers Program recently published an abridged version of St. Croix 360’s stories from last summer about mussels in the St. Croix River.

The article is in Wild and Scenic River Currents, the second annual edition of a newsletter “designed to recognize the accomplishments of the National Park Service wild and scenic river community.”

While the mussel stories on St. Croix 360 were published in three lengthy parts, this version includes essentially a photo from each story and what amounts to extended captions. It’s a great honor to share the St. Croix River with NPS river folks from around the country.

Thank you to Byron Karns and Lisa Yager from the Saint Croix National Scenic Riverway for making this happen.

The whole newsletter is full of interesting information about Wild and Scenic Rivers managed by the National Park Service from coast to coast. It also can give a person a lot of ideas for traveling and exploring…
