Habitheque recently presented a brand new exhibition at the Fairmount Water Works museum in Philadelphia. The new and innovative Mussel Hatchery and Aquatic Field Station was created to raise awareness about mussels and the vital need for revitalizing and protecting our freshwater systems for the health of all living things. Urban Video Productions worked with Fairmount Water Works to put together this video for the exhibit.
At the Mussel Hatchery, visitors can experience an interactive living science laboratory in action, get a behind-the-scenes look at the life and times of a freshwater mussel, and enjoy a unique view of the ever-changing Schuylkill River habitat. The hatchery will demonstrate the ecological benefits of freshwater mussel restoration in improving the health of our waterways.
We should all care about mussels because they are natural water filters AND are among the most imperiled creatures on the planet. - Fairmount Water Works
