Events from 10/14/20
From 10/14/20 9:00 am until 10/14/20 12:00 pmVolunteers will help AWS with a wild freshwater mussel survey and broodstock collection at Buzzard Point! In 2015, we started surveying the native species of freshwater mussels in the Anacostia River to understand their diversity and abundance. In 2018 we started a mussel propagation project partnering with the Harrison Lake National Fish Hatchery run by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Virginia collecting local broodstock from the Anacostia River. Volunteers are critical to keep this project going and to meet our goal of enhancing mussel populations to increase their water filtration capacity to help clean our river.
