The thirteenth meeting of Florida United Malacologists will take place on Saturday, April 15, 2023, at the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission’s (FWC) Fish & Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI), in St. Petersburg, Florida. The one-day gathering typically includes presentations by researchers, enthusiasts, citizen scientists, educators, and students, and covers a broad swath of mollusk-related topics.
The Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum hosted the first FUM in 2010, and the event has been hosted also by the Florida Museum of Natural History, the University of South Florida, and Stetson College. As usual, FUM is open to anyone interested. There is no fee for participation, but registration is required. Participation will be limited to about 70 people. If you’re interested in attending, please contact: Steve Geiger, Stephen.Geiger@MyFWC.com or Dave Karlen, Karlen@epchc.org. Learn more about past FUM events here!
