Jason Lindsey's Film, "Mussel Grubbing", Included in A Number of Film Festivals
Jason Lindsey's newest film, Mussel Grubbing: A Citizen Science Treasure Hunt, won best documentary at the World Water Film Festival! It is also only one of two films in the festival that will open the United Nations 2023 World Water Conference. The festival took place in New York City on Sunday, March 19th and Jason was able to be in attendance.
Mussel Grubbing explores the treasure hunt for finding freshwater mussels in the upper Sangamon River. Everyday people in Illinois are supporting science in ways that are important to the well-being of their local environment. Finding a diverse collection of healthy mussels means a healthy river, which in turn means healthy people in the community. The film also shows how people come together around these experiences to ensure a healthy community.
