Join the Xerces Society and Crystal Springs Partnership for an all-day event that includes a training session and stream survey. Learn about the life history and biology of freshwater mussels and help researchers survey for freshwater mussels in Portland Oregon’s Crystal Springs Creek. Volunteers will spend the day in and near the stream to survey for mussels, record habitat data, and use their identification skills to help identify native mussels and non-native clams.
