What “Shell” We Learn Tonight? – A Sea Shell Q + A

  • 13 Aug 2020
  • 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
  • Online via Zoom


Registration is closed

A collection of shells of different shapes and sizes. Some are spiral while others are clam-shaped.

In the next Ask and Expert Q&A, NHSM’s invertebrate curator and BCCC instructor, Fred Paraskevoudakis, will discuss how sea shells are made and why, what sea shells are most common in the Mid-Atlantic, and what role sea shells play in our environment. Dust off those shells you may have lying about, or that you just collected at a safe social distance – of course – for some impromptu shell ID and more.

The suggested donation for this event is $5. NHSM understands that the pandemic has adversely impacted many. It shouldn’t impact access to education. Therefore, a free option is also available.
Please note that this is a 2-Step Registration Process. Once registered, a confirmation email will contain a link to register via Zoom. We apologize for the inconvenience, but this is an added layer of security.
