Day 1 will be field based and involve sampling a range of sites and habitats. Experienced recorders will be on hand to provide training and guidance to anyone new to earthworm recording. The aim of the day is to introduce the method for sampling for the National Earthworm Recording Scheme.
Day 2 will
involve a lab-based identification course led by ESB tutors and is suitable for those with no experience or those that want to identify earthworms. Attendees are welcome to bring earthworms from their own gardens or other places and we will happily help with identification.
***Please note that the sampling day will require a reasonable level of fitness and the weekend will involve the collection and preservation of specimens***
