JMU Professor in Residence Jon Miles was part of a team that organized a mussel release in the South River for Waynesboro High School students. This event provided students and their teacher, Ms. Kristin Trover, the opportunity to contribute toward the restoration of a critical species in the South River that helps to enhance water quality and increase the biodiversity of this critical watershed. Virginia First Lady Pam Northam, herself an environmental educator, was on hand along with experts from Virginia Tech, state and federal agencies, and city staff to participate in this experiential learning event.
