VIRTUAL Nature at Noon: Invasive Jumping Worms

jumping worms in Iowa

Thursday, February 11, 12:00 – 1:00 PM

Earthworms are usually good for our soils, but a family of earthworms recently introduced from eastern Asia are becoming a challenge for the North American environment, even now identified in Iowa and local gardens. Jumping worms (Amynthas sp.), sometimes called snake worms or crazy worms, are an invasive earthworm with the potential to dramatically impact soil structure and forest ecology, and reduce biodiversity. Bring your lunch (or maybe not!) and join Director Ed Lyon for an introduction to these crafty critters. Attend each month to experience a new topic presented by local and regional professionals.
