The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed the presence of zebra mussels in Scandinavian Lake, near Terrace in Pope County.
Pope County staff discovered two zebra mussels near a lake property. Minnesota DNR staff found two additional zebra mussels near the Scandinavian Lake public water access and took a report from the Scandinavian Lake Association of a zebra mussel found in another part of the lake.
People should contact a Minnesota DNR aquatic invasive species specialist(mndnr.gov/invasives/ais/contacts.html) if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species that was not already known to be in the water body.
More information is available on the aquatic invasive species page of the Minnesota DNR website (mndnr.gov/ais).
