July Meeting: At this month’s meeting, on Wednesday, July 9th we welcome one of our past BSC scholarship winners, Mr. Lucas Jennings. Mr. Jennings is an FAU student, and he will give an update on his scholarship research and some of the difficulties he encountered. His research was a study of stress and interaction between shrimp, nudibranchs, and sea anemones. For the Mini-program this month, we wish to present a mini-identification session, where Bob Pace and others will help us to identify our beach finds or unidentified shells in our collection. We are asking that our members bring no more than 5 shells each for identification, and we will work on identifying the shells you bring.
