Have you ever learned about a really cool activity that requires different sands or different shells? Here’s your opportunity to expand your educational resources!
Have you had someone donate their precious shell collection….but you just don’t have a need for all those shells? Here’s your chance to find them new homes!
NMEA 2016 conference participants are encouraged to bring extra shells/shell collections and/or sand from their home beach to share (please label the bag or jar of sand with at least the city and state/province/country).
A limited number of small zipper seal bags will be available—please feel free to bring your own film canisters, small jars or baggies to use to "collect” your sand samples. The sand and shell swap will take place from 5:30 to 6:30 pm on Thursday, June 30 in the Oceans 3 room at the conference. If you would like to drop off sand or shells ahead of time, you can put them in a tote box under the Florida Sea Grant table in the exhibit area.
