WormWatch is part of a national volunteer monitoring program to identify ecological changes that may be affecting our environment. WormWatch is designed to help scientists learn more about earthworm populations and distribution in Canada. This knowledge will be useful in determining the health of our soils, and in tracking changes and reclaiming degraded sites.
Volunteers of all ages can help monitor Canada’s worm populations. All you have to do is find a cool, moist spot and dig in. Contact Nature Canada to receive your WormWatch ID poster and survey form or visit the national WormWatch Web site to find out how to submit your observations directly.
