Community building

Invasive Asian Jumping Worms - Have you noticed them yet? (via Zoom): Asian jumping worms move more like a snake than our average earthworms and leave behind soil that looks like coffee grounds. They strip the forest of the layer critical for seedlings and wildflowers (and threaten Maple Syrup!) Jumping worms grow twice as fast, reproduce more quickly, and can infest soils at high densities. In areas of heavy infestation, native plants, soil invertebrates, salamanders, birds, and other animals may decline. 6 p.m. These worms can severely damage the roots of plants in nurseries, gardens, forests, turf. Be careful not to spread them by sharing potted plants, fishing, foot/vehicle traffic. Q&A after the talk. Speaker is Josef Gorres, Assoc. Prof. at UVM in the Plant and Soil Science Dept. Sponsored by Londonderry VT Conservation Commission. Zoom. Information: Link:
