WELCOME TO HEARTOFTHETIPPY! The information presented on this webpage is intended to help protect endangered mussels that live in the Tippecanoe River.

The Tippecanoe River is home to one of the most diverse populations of freshwater mussels in the United States, including 6 federally listed species. Protecting mussels, whether endangered or not, is critical for maintaining good water quality, healthy fish and wildlife populations, and recreational use of the river.
