For those of you interested, a really good group for freshwater
mussels is the Freshwater Mollusk Conservation Society:

Check it out, read about it, and join. The meetings are a hoot and
very informative, and the group has many of the same beliefs and
concepts as NANFA. If you have any questions about FMCS, you can ask
me, and I will try and track down an answer.
