The Board of the Sanibel-Captiva Shell Club continued its strong support of the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum by awarding $7,750 in grants for 2020. The second installment of $6,250 towards the Shell Museum’s construction/aquarium project was made this year, part of an overall donation of $25,000 when completed. Also, another $1,500 grant was approved to cover the cost of the one year fee for Specify Software to host the cloud-based database of over 500,000 shell specimens.
