At Kyles Ford Preserve, this shallow section of the Clinch River contains the most biologically diverse concentration
of freshwater mussels in the U.S., with
some species globally unique. It was
acquired by TWRA in partnership with The
Nature Conservancy and other groups to
preserve the area’s rare, threatened and
endangered mussels species.
Clinch River sustains 48 imperiled and
vulnerable species, 39 varieties of rare
mussels, 19 species of fish and at least 50
globally rare cave animals that inhabit a
network of some 1,250 caves beneath the
Kyles Ford Preserve.
