A short business meeting at 6:00 p.m. will be followed by pizza and refreshments at 6:30 p.m.  At 7:00 p.m., Annise Dobson, PhD, a postdoctoral researcher at Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, will present on program on Invasive Worms.
Did you know that earthworms are not native to Connecticut? Jumping worms, also known as crazy worms, snake worms, and Alabama jumpers, are an emerging conservation threat to native species, habitats, industries, and hobbies. These earthworms hail from Asia and arrived in the United States through nursery industry imports.
Jumping worms alter the structure and chemistry of the soil dramatically, leaving a grainy soil full of worm excrement (castings), and they damage lawns, landscapes and forest habitat. Learn about the worms, current research, and potential solutions.
