Citizen Science Meet Up: Snail Hunt

Griffith Park

Museum scientists invite citizen scientists for a snail and slug hunt in Griffith Park where we hope wet weather brought by El Niño will reveal these often overlooked creatures.  We expect to find local and non-native species of snails and slugs, some of which may be the first records of their kind in Los Angeles County!

This program is part of the El Niño SnailBlitz. NHM launched the El Niño SnailBlitz to promote the SLIME project and take advantage of our unusually rainy winter.
