Today at CBI, the Environmental Group got a special treat- a chance to kayak, look for mussels and put out eel traps!
Eel traps were deployed using hot dogs as bait since ,oddly enough, they seem to work best! However, our net search for freshwater mussels came up empty. We're going to try different strategies to find mussels this week.
Unexpectedly, instead of mussels, we ended up picking lots of plastic trash from the Charles River. We recycled what we could at CBI, then properly discarded the rest.
