Ever wondered what is swimming in the river? Now is your chance to find out! “Aquatic Life of the River” will be held from 8-10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 17, at the Bonaparte Boat Ramp in Bonaparte.
A team from the State Hygienic Laboratory from the University of Iowa will use various techniques, including electroshocking, to collect and sample the aquatic life of the river.
Pre-registration is not required for the free program.
The program is an official Lower Des Moines River Water Trail program co-sponsored by the Iowa DNR Water Trails and Jefferson County Conservation.
