Protecting Freshwater Mussels


Join us at the Chapter House on Tuesday, November 22, 7:30 PM to hear biologist Brett J. K. Ostby, provide an overview of the science and business of freshwater mussel conservation. He will also provide real life examples of how state and federal endangered species regulations work and where they fall short.

Having started his career as an academic, Brett never intended to run a business or deal with construction schedules, engineers, and regulators on a daily basis. Nevertheless, he found a place where a commitment to protection of natural resources was needed and where his scientific training could be put to use. Nevertheless, remaining an independent voice while providing a commercial service has been challenging.


Stay afterward for light refreshments, beverage and socialization with others and the speaker.
