Florida Seashells: Past & PresentTaylor Keeran
This winter two branches of the Citrus County Library System will host the “Florida Seashells: Past and Present” program. The first presentation will be on Tuesday, January 17 at 10:00 AM at the Floral City branch, and the second will be on Saturday, February 11 at 10:00 AM at the Lakes Region branch in Inverness. This program was first presented as part of the 2022 Summer Reading Program, Oceans of Possibilities.
Join scientists and experts Leslie Moore and Pat Gould as they pass along some of their expertise on fossilized and modern seashells found in Florida. Attendees will 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, who is a Malacologist Cataloger at the Smithsonian’s Seashell collection, as she takes you through the seashell families found along Florida’s shoreline.
