Come explore the fascinating world of land snails and slugs with malacologist
and naturalist Marla Coppolino on Saturday, June 16 at 10 a.m. at the Ellis
Hollow Nature Preserve!
This will be an appropriately slow walk to discover the secretive and hidden
microhabitats of land snails and slugs. The humble snails are among the
least-studied and most under-appreciated organisms, yet they serve as a cleanup
crew for the ecosystem as well as vital food for many insects, amphibians,
reptiles, birds, and mammals. Bring a magnifier and some insect repellent, if
you have them.
Directions: From Ithaca, follow Ellis Hollow Road 2.5 miles past East Hill
Shopping Plaza. Turn left on Genung Road, then right on Ellis Hollow Creek
Road. Preserve entrance is located 0.2 miles past intersection, on left side of
