Botanic Talk: Invasive Asian Jumping Worms: A 2019 Research Update

October 3 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Did you know that all worms are not Good Guys?

There is a new invasive species of worm in Southern Wisconsin called “jumping worms”—and they are nothing to jump up and down about. Brad Herrick will be presenting on this important topic.  Brad Herrick holds a B.A. in Biology from Luther College and an M.S. in Ecosystems Studies from UW-Green Bay. For the past 12 years, Brad Herrick has been the ecologist and research program manager at the UW-Madison Arboretum. His research interests include plant community ecology, invasion biology, and environmental monitoring. He also assists in developing long-term restoration plans for Arboretum lands.  Recently he has been investigating the biology, ecology, and control mechanisms of the non-native, invasive jumping worm.
