Nick Spero will display a variety of items from the Natural History Society of Maryland. Included in the display will be mounted butterflies, snails, fossils, antlers, and more. Among other topics, Nick will point out some of the differences between butterflies and moths and talk about Liguus snail shells from Florida, highlighting the variation in colors of the same species and how the indigenous people adopted the color of their local shell for their clothing.
