Clam Shrimp: A Surprising Piece of our Natural Heritage with Nicole Madden
Thursday, March 16 on Zoom
Once listed as endangered, the Agassiz’s Clam Shrimp was re-found in a storm water basin wetland on the Camp Edwards Training Site in 2015 where it had been previously documented in 1999. After that, a concerted effort by the Massachusetts Army National Guard’s Natural Resources Program focused on documenting and protecting the species. Also, a long-term conservation plan was developed using a variety of conservation tools to protect and preserve these unique creatures. Hopefully, greater public awareness will lead to the discovery of more clam shrimp locations throughout the region.
