No matter who you are, if you are curious or concerned about jumping/snake worms, this conference is for you!

Join UMass Extension as we welcome scientists who specialize in jumping/snake worm research to discuss the latest understanding of these earthworms. How to identify jumping/snake worms, what their potential impacts are, and the latest research into how we might manage them to be discussed.
