April 22: EARTH DAY! Zoom Cafe "Mussel Strength"
8:45 a.m. to 9:45 a.m., Thursday April 22
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.
NOTE: Before COVID, the Forum hosted café events. The 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.
