Just in case the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Boathouse Row and Kelly Drive weren't enough reasons to visit the Schuylkill River banks, Fairmount Waterworks recently announced a new exhibit that explores how mussels can help clean our drinking water!
From CBS Philly:
The Fairmount Water Works is hatching a plan to help clean the water we drink every day, with a Mussels Hatchery.
The exhibit along the Schuylkill River Trail, near the Art Museum, opens Friday.
The new installation is part living science laboratory, and part interactive exhibit featuring mussels, but not the kind you eat with a plate of linguine.
