Mollusks on the Move by Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum

This interactive experience brings LIVE mollusks straight to you!

 

School presentations for grades K-5 focus on mollusk feeding, reproduction, and conservation and the importance of observing the natural world. School presentations for grades 6-12 are also available upon request.

 

Each student goes home with a local shell to start their very own collection! We incorporate grade-specific Next Generation Sunshine State Standards curriculum objectives into each program. If you’re interested in having Mollusks on the Move at a middle or high school, please specify your presentation preferences with the Education Coordinator (contact below).

 

We also bring our live touch pools to garden clubs, festivals, and other special events. A marine biologist will be present to answer your guests’ questions about mollusks.

Price: $350 per visit

Scholarships are available for Title I schools in Lee and Collier Counties.

 

Additional Information:

  • Visits are currently available year-round. Scheduling is subject to staff availability.

  • Each student is required to write a thank-you note to the donor who funded their experience. We believe it’s important to learn how to say thank you, and donors love them!

​To request a visit from Mollusks on the Move, please email Kelsey Hausmann at khausmann@shellmuseum.org or call 239-347-5119.
