It’s now official: according to a news release from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the presence of zebra mussels in North Lida Lake has been confirmed.


Late last week, DNR crews searched the lake near Pelican Rapids and discovered two zebra mussels about a half-mile from the location where, earlier this month, a lakeshore resident found a can with two adult zebra mussels attached to it in front of a private lake access.
