Did you know that earthworms are an important part of the forest ecosystem?  They are also beneficial to your garden plants!  Students will learn about these wiggly critters by observing live specimens and sharing a book about wiggly worms. We will also dig for worms in the park and take a nature walk. Limited to 10 children. Masks must be worn by children for the entire program. Ages 5-7.
