This manuscript summarizes the findings of a survey for freshwater mussels of the family Unionidae (hereafter, simply referred to as ''mussels") in selected streams of the Sabine National Forest (SNF) adjacent to Toledo Bend Reservoir in East Texas (Figure 1).
Prospective sites within the SNF were selected based on their proximity to USDAFS property as identified in the Sabine National Forest administrative map (USDAFS 2001) and by their accessibility by automobile, all-terrain bicycle, or foot.
