Everyone has snails in their garden, but many gardeners don't like snails because they have a tendency to eat the veggies growing in the garden.  You may know that a snail moves slowly, is slimy, and has a shell, but what else do you really know about them?  This  site is for snail lovers and kids who want to learn more about these interesting critters found in the schoolyard.
