Educating with Extension Newsletters

Each month, the Extension Service publishes a newsletter about its exciting programs and events both past and upcoming. See what we are doing and how you can become involved. 

For our November 2022 newsletter, we featured an article written by Shelly Krueger, Sea Grant Agent, Queen Conch.conch

"Queen Conch (current scientific name Alger gigas, formerly Strombus gigas) is such an iconic animal in the Florida Keys that local born residents are called “conchs,” especially those living near Key West, Florida.  Most locals have their own recipes for conch salad and conch fritters, and on New Year’s Eve, a famous local establishment drops a giant lighted conch during the end-of-year countdown on Duval Street."  

 To read the article, and find events and programs of the Extension Service, check out the November 2022 Newsletter!
