"Flexing our Mussels on Restoration" Free Webinar

Tucked in between the rocks of our rivers and streams are some of the most interesting animals in our watershed—Freshwater Mussels. Freshwater Mussels are masters of disguises, camouflaging themselves to look like rocks and fish, while they filter algae, bacteria, and nutrients from the water.

Join us to learn about the mighty mussel and combined efforts across the watershed to restore populations of these important animals to the James, featuring JRA's Staff Scientist Erin Reilly, Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources' Brian Watson, and the US Fish and Wildlife Service's Rachel Mair.
