My yard is inundated with snails this year. What can I do to eliminate them and not harm the environment or animals.

Hand picking doesn't sound like an option for you so I'd suggest using a snail control bait. The iron-based Sluggo is effective and whatever is not consumed by the snails will break down into simple iron. Sluggo is harmless to people, pets and wildlife.
