Healthy Mollusks = Healthy Rivers = Healthy People

The Freshwater Mollusk Conservation Society's 2009 Symposium focused on the ongoing work of North American malacologists to restore, conserve, and understand our freshwater mollusks. In 2009, however, we broadened the scope and reach beyond our organization to share information and learn from our international and tribal partners.
FMCS membership is made up of agency, industry, non-governmental organizations and academicians from across North America, mostly from the eastern US and Canada but with an increasing overseas interest.
