Join scientists Leslie Moore and Pat Gould as they pass along some of their expertise on fossilized and modern seashells found in Florida.

Learn about the ancestral history of Florida’s seashells by looking at the fossilized shells which were found in quarries and sand pits, along with current shells found along the beaches in Florida. Follow along with Leslie, a Malacologist Cataloger at the Smithsonian’s Seashell collection, as she takes you through the seashell families found along Florida’s shoreline. Check out the accompanying library display through the month of June and view some of the Florida shells they will be showing, as well as a few very rare and unusual shells from around the globe.
