Monmouth County Parks System senior park naturalist Joe Reynolds shared his knowledge of mollusks and their importance to the ecosystem at the Bayshore Waterfront Activity Center in Port Monmouth Sunday. On that frigid afternoon, beach lovers were encouraged to bring their collection of seashells in for the park naturalist to identify or browse the seashell collections on display. With each shell, the park naturalist explained a bit of what life is like for these small but critical creatures.
