SELC files complaint vs US Fish and Wildlife over 540 toll road threat to endangered mussels

Tara Moore sent a link to us about the complaint being filed.  We should let Tara know if we wish to be more involved.

“Tiny and unobtrusive, the endangered Dwarf Wedgemussel and the threatened Yellow Lance Mussel are minding their own business in Swift Creek in southern Wake County. They’re doing what freshwater mussels do: The larvae, having hitchhiked a ways on the back of fish like the johnny darter or a mottled sulpin, hatched just last month. Free of their kids, the adults are hanging out in the sand bottom, nibbling on algae.”
