The Sixth-Annual Conservation Symposium at The Cleveland Museum of Natural History

Presented by The Cleveland Museum of Natural History Conservation Symposium Series

Conservation Symposium
excerpt from above:
Quote:
Soil life is the Earth's most abundant terrestrial ecosystem and supports a tremendously diverse biota. Organisms range in size from the tiniest single-celled bacteria, algae, fungi, and protozoa; to the more complex nematodes and micro-arthropods; to the visible earthworms, insects, small vertebrates, and plants. The interactions of these organisms maintain a healthy soil food web and provide a foundation for energy flow and nutrient cycling.

This symposium looks good... really good. Look at who one of their speakers is, "Workshops on Thursday, September 10

9 am to 4 pmEarthworm Workshop
Instructor: Cindy Hale, Ph.D.

For most of us, when we think of earthworms we think of the benefits they bring to our soil and plants, unfortunately however, this is not always the case and these tiny creatures are actually causing harm to our natural areas. Native earthworms in northern North America were extirpated during the last glaciation and the current population, brought here by early Europeans, is slowly changing the face of our native forests.
Please join us as we learn about the fascinating world of earthworms in our region. Dr. Cindy Hale, from the University of Minnesota at Duluth and author of The Earthworms of the Great Lakes, will demonstrate earthworm survey methods on this field trip to selected areas in our region. In addition, Dr. Hale will conduct a short course in the afternoon on worm identification.
More information about earthworms is available at the Great Lakes Worm Watch website.
Limit: 12. Lunch: Bring your own. Fee: $30 per person. Travel by Museum Van. Depart from the Museum at 9 am."
