Volunteer Opportunities

Great Lakes Worm Watch will be providing volunteer opportunities for individuals and groups to get out in the field collecting data on earthworm presence, species composition, and relative abundance along with soils and plants sampling. You will be provided the opportunity to communicate directly with researchers on study design, sampling locations, sampling protocols, identification assistance and outreach opportunities. Get out for the day (or more) conducting earthworm sampling, learning about soil and forest ecosystems and getting firsthand experience of what science is all about.
