* Earthworms LectureEarthworms Lecture

Time: 6:00 PM

“Earthworms: Friends to Gardens or Foes to Northern Forests and their Amphibian Cohorts?” Lecture by Elyse Henshaw Roger Tory Peterson Institute Conservation Technician The Great Lakes Region was devoid of earthworm species following the most recent glacial period; and as such the soils in northern forests developed in their absence. However, European settlers introduced exotic species of earthworms which have since spread due to human activities such as composting, dumping, development and horticulture. While earthworms have become the beloved friends of many gardeners, they have become troublesome to many northeastern forests and their amphibian cohorts. Join Elyse Henshaw, RTPI Conservation Technician, as she discusses the ecology of forest-dwelling amphibian species, the impact of non-native earthworms, and what can be done to reduce the spread of these squirmy invaders.
