Seashells: Building a Home to Suit Your Lifestyle

Event: 
Sat, 09/09/2017 - 10:00am - 4:00pm

What can the shape and structure of a seashell tell us about the biology of the animal that made it? Are abalones snails, and why do their shells always have holes? We’ll explore these and other questions by examining the lives and shells of some marine bivalves and snails during a presentation starting at 2 pm. You’ll get to take home a special shell! Learn about shells, make shell jewelry, and enjoy related arts and crafts throughout the day at the Wet Center.
