Urban Slug Walk

Presented by GSU 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 Clyde Shepard Nature Preserve! 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.
