About Our Club

The Sarasota Shell Club was formed in September of 1963 to bring together shell lovers in Sarasota, Manatee and Charlotte Counties. The club is a 

501 (C)(3) not-for-profit organization open to young and old alike. We strive to provide an atmosphere where anyone who wishes may enjoy and share their interest in or love of shells and mollusks.

Our membership ranges from those who are serious scientific collectors of shells to those who love to pick up pretty shells while on walks on the beach; from those who know the Latin names to those who simply enjoy having shells to decorate their lives.

We welcome you all!
