You don’t have to dig in the dirt to learn about a very unique earthworm. The Friends of Peninsula State Park are sponsoring a free program called “The Secret Life of Jumping Worms” on Saturday, August 25. Bernadette “Bernie” Williams, a Plant Pest and Disease Specialist in Forest Health for the Wisconsin DNR, will reveal the secrets of the invasive “jumping worm”. Steve Strucely of the Friends of Peninsula State Park says people who come to the family-friendly event in a couple weeks will learn a lot about the impact worms have on the environment.
Strucely says the annual meeting for the Friends Group is prior to the presentation which will be at 1 pm in the Weborg Shelter in Peninsula State Park.
