Quagga Mussel Prevention Going Strong At Lake Powell

This is 9 minute video well worth the watch on the Quagga or Zebra mussels. The National Park Service at Glen Canyon has done a great job in preventing the entrance of these creatures into Lake Powell. Aware in 1998 that mussel’s could significantly impact Glen Canyon and Lake Powell the Park Service now has an aggressive inspection program and also works with the Navajo Park in keeping infected boats from entering the lake before decontamination.

Help keep our western waterways clear of these damaging mussels. Lake Powell is under significant threat from these mussels. One female can make 1 million more mussels in 1 year quickly taking over fresh water lakes.
