DNR staff joined forces with volunteers from the Upper Sugar River Watershed Association to stock 400 plain pocketbook mussels, a native species, into the Sugar River. Each mussel was marked and measured, and volunteers will return each year to monitor their growth. The project was funded by DNR’s Citizen-based Monitoring Partnership Program. To learn more about native mussels and how to monitor them, visit http://wiatri.net/inventory/mussels/.
Kiwanis/Econo-misers Bookworms A New Year
The Belleville Kiwanis Club and Belleville Econo-misers will again bring a K4 reading program to community children through the coming school year. Since 2006 these community organizations have sponsored this program. Seven books are provided and read to young children to foster the adventure of reading. Club members read a book to the class each month. A book is then given to each child to take home for family reading time.
The books are purchased with donations from community supporters including Belleville Chiropractic, Belleville Family Clinic, Belleville Laundromat, Belleville Veterinary, Bob Smith family, Brad & Andy Beale families, Cameo Rose B&B, Cate Machine , Charlie’s Bark Park, Christen Bros Service, Doug & JoAnn Hagen, Econo-misers, Express Fitness, Flesch Chiropractic, Francois Sales & Service, Hometown Pharmacy, J &M bar, Kiwanis Club, Mike O’Connor State Farm, Monona Bank, PTO, Prairieland Dairy, Shane Zick family, Smiles Dental, Sugar River Bank, Corner Café, U B &T Bank, William Fahey family.
Kiwanis and Econo-misers thank these supporters and the school teaching staff who select books and coordinate reading sessions.
