   About Us      

     The Pacific Northwest Shell Club was established in 1960 with its purpose to promote the study of molluscs, the hobby of shell collecting and the preservation of molluscan species and their habitat.  Read about our Scholarship Program below.  Our membership ranges from beginners to professional scientists.  We are based out of Seattle, Washington, with our current meeting location just north of the Seattle city limits.  Meetings are free for anyone to attend and feature educational presentations.   Meetings often include silent auctions and door prizes.  They are held on the third Sunday of each month, except for June when the meeting will be held on the fourth Sunday.

Special meetings are:  August - Annual Shell Auction; December - Christmas party                                         

 Visitors are always welcome!

Scholarships

The Pacific Northwest Shell Club offers an annual scholarship to students who are doing research on Pacific Northwest mollusks.  Students must be currently enrolled college graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, or third or fourth-year undergraduate students.  The research should be malacologicial in nature and advance our understanding of mollusks or their role in their environment.  Scholarship recipients will be expected to either present a program to the club describing their results, or provide an article for the newsletter.  Their dissertation, or resulting publication, will be included in our club's library.
