U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service biologist Jon Duyvejonck sorts through mussel shells washed ashore on the bank of the Mississippi River in Pigeon Creek Park, Bettendorf. Duyvejonck will give a talk about mussels aboard the Channel Cat water taxi June 4 and 6. The Channel Cat will take participants to the Pigeon Creek site so they can see the mussels for themselves.

Volunteers are needed to help with Earth Week activities from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 22, sponsored by River Action.

From 9 a.m. to noon, volunteers will meet at Bettendorf's Pigeon Creek Park, 6729 Shutters Lane, to move wood debris to be chipped, treat stumps so they don't grow back, pick up trash and help remove invasive plant species.

Snacks, gloves, and bags will be provided. Bring your own trowels and shovels if possible.

To get there: Take U.S. 67 in Bettendorf to Shoreline Drive and turn south. Follow this road about one-quarter mile, passing Olympic Steel. At the fork, turn left onto Marigold Lane, which turns into becomes Shutters Lane. Follow this until you reach the parking lot.
