On Saturday, September 13th, a low-head dam was removed from the Miami River in Williamsburg, and the native mussels living in the area were relocated for their safety. Many of these mussels were relocated to the Mill Creek, near Caldwell park.

Now their presence will increase biodiversity within the watershed and help to speed the recovery of the Mill Creek.
