Woo A Worm!

Have a go at 'worm charming' with the Natural History Museum and see how many of the UK's 27 species we can find.

On Saturday 22 May, Dr Dan Carpenter of the Museum's Soil Biodiversity Group and also Secretary of the Earthworm Society of Britain will lead us in some of the most commonly-used techniques to see which activity yields the most worms.

You could try ‘twanging’, stamping or even singing to encourage the wriggly inhabitants to the surface.

Find out why earthworms are so important.
