Hi Tom, 

I am sending a link that will connect you to a webinar entitled: 

Invasive Jumping Worms: The Impact of a New Soil Invader
Brad Herrick, Ecologist/Research Program Manager, UW-Madison Arboretum

Jumping worms are invading forests and horticultural landscapes throughout the United States. These Asian earthworms modify soil structure and chemistry, nutrient dynamics, soil food webs, litter depth, and plant health. This talk will share information on general earthworm biology and identification, impacts, control options, and the latest research findings.
