In 2022, Central Michigan University researchers conducted 69 surveys. These surveys detected 17 live species and a total of 739 live individual mussels, most notably the federally endangered Snuffbox and the Michigan state endangered Black Sandshell. Their interactive StoryMap report shares their findings along with photos and videos.
In addition, the research team is working on developing maps for individual species that they will share when completed.
