(Wyoming) – The recent issue with zebra mussels and moss balls used in aquariums has Wyoming Game and Fish partnering with multiple organizations to help eliminate it and at the same time giving someone a chance to win $1200.
Zebra mussels are a very invasive mollusk that is currently threating Wyoming waters. Wyoming Trout Unlimited, along with other sponsors, have joined the fight in helping with a month long give-back program. If you return a moss ball, you are in for a drawing for $1200.
According to Wyoming Game and Fish, all aquarium moss balls are eligible to be submitted to the program. If you would like to return a moss ball, net it out of the water and put it in a sealed baggie or sealed container. Then take it to one of the offices listed below. The closest one for Fremont County residents is the Lander office.
