Science for Everyone: Jumping Worms – A New Invasive in Wisconsin

April 19, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


All earthworms in Wisconsin are nonnative, and some are invasive and can cause problems especially in northern forests.  In 2013 the WDNR identified the first population of jumping worms which pose a new threat and have now been reported in 22 WI counties.  We are just beginning to understand their lifecycle and means of spread, so please  join WDNR invasive species specialist Kelly Kearns to learn how to recognize them and look for signs of their presence to prevent their spread.

FEE: Free ($5 donation suggested). No registration required.
