Did you know the UK is home to 29 different species of earthworm, and these come in a variety of colours and sizes?

Different earthworms can be found in different habitats, with British earthworms breaking down into 4 broad ecological groupings. Keiron Derek Brown will talk about how to recognise the four ‘ecotypes’ by observing the behaviour, size and colour of an earthworm, as well as introducing some of the lesser-known specialist earthworms that you can find in unusual places.  

Please join us for a fascinating evening delving into the underground world!

This event is free to members and volunteers of Surrey Wildlife Trust.
