Brad Herrick

Many Door County gardeners have been shocked to discover invasive jumping worms in their lawns, gardens and woodlands. Ecologist Brad Herrick will explore the impact of this new nonnative soil invader during the next lecture of the Door County Master Gardeners Association’s (DCMGA) Education Series on April 26, 6:30-8 pm, at Crossroads at Big Creek, 2041 Michigan St. in Sturgeon Bay.

Herrick, the research program manager at the UW-Madison Arboretum, will discuss the potentially harmful impacts of the jumping worm on forests and gardens in Door County and the Midwest, as well as offer hope regarding potential control options.
