Urban Slug Walk

Presented by Georgia State University - Geosciences

Feeling sluggish? So are we! Come on out on a slug filled adventure where we'll use our eagle eyes to search for these slimy and fascinating creatures, and learn all about them as we hike through Sykes Park! Download the iNaturalist app beforehand, and we’ll use that to identify what we find and contribute data to the Atlanta SLIME (Snails and slugs Living In Metropolitan Environments) project! See how many TENtacles you can find in celebration of the 10th Atlanta Science Festival!
