Wildlife Trusts Logo

Earthworms are essential to soil quality, come in many varieties and are under-recorded throughout the country. Learn to identify them with Dan Carpenter of the Earthworm Society of Britain and help to reduce the knowledge gap.

In the morning we will sample earthworms across the Woolley Firs estate and then identify them with the help of microscopes in the afternoon.

At the end of the day we will have a record of the species across the habitats at Woolley Firs and you will have experienced a wide range of earthworms and be ready to sample your own area.

ESB Earthworm Identification Weekends are two-day courses suitable for beginners and more experienced recorders alike, involving a sampling day in the field with an identification workshop the following day. These workshops provide participants with the knowledge and skills they will need to sample, identify and record British earthworms, provide support/verification for existing earthworm recorders and generate new earthworm records/species lists for previously unrecorded sites.
