Westborough – Westborough Community Land Trust (WCLT) will present ‘Seashells at the Shore” Sunday, Feb. 24, starting at 1:30 p.m., at Westborough Public Library. People of all ages are welcome to attend.

Do you know about the clam that was used for wampum, the sex-changing snail, clams that ride the waves, jet propulsion in scallops, and snails that drill holes in clam shells? Join lifelong beachcomber, biology teacher, and natural history author Dr. Scott Shumway to explore the secret lives of the mollusks whose shells wash up on our shores.  Audience members are encouraged to bring shells from their collection and try to stump the professor.

Scott Shumway is Professor of Biology at Wheaton College and author of “Naturalist’s Guide to the Atlantic Seashore.”  A book signing will follow.

The Westborough Public Library is located at 55 West Main St. For more information, visit the WCLT site at http://westboroughlandtrust.org.
