Contribute to community science and museum research by walking Sanibel beach areas at some of the lowest tides of the year to observe and document sightings of living mollusks. The data collected will be used to help benchmark the health and prevalence of local mollusk species on Sanibel. Participants are assigned a section of beach to walk and receive a shell guide to help identify species.


Note: Start times are approximate and will be confirmed once participants are assigned to a section.

There is no cost for this program, but pre-registration is required.


Inquiries and registration: (239) 347-5119 or
