The Four Lakes Task Force reported in their December newsletter about this research project. In 2022, Central Michigan University researchers conducted 69 surveys of native mussels in Wixom and Sanford Lakes after all the disturbance of the recent dam failures. 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.
