|Looking for freshwater mussels|
|Snorkel survey in the Chehalis River|
|Still looking . . .|
As this project continues and expands, we will be able to form an idea of the health of the rivers we are surveying based on what we find (or don’t find). These findings will, in turn, give us very important information about what sort of management, conservation, and restoration practices would be most beneficial for the Chehalis River basin.
