DCNR Tour to the USGS Fish Lab and Hesselgessel Mil

Club members joined DCNR biologists on a tour of the historic Hesselgessel millstone quarry site in Asaph, where exposed conglomerate and one authentic millstone still stand for the curious to visit.  Next was the USGS Aquatic Research Lab facility at the bottom of the mountain. There we saw the lab's operations, including tanks full of eels being raised for re-introduction into streams for research and to restore both eel and freshwater mussel populations.
