Video Summary

Topics:
"Duluth Schools Construction Update" & "New Earthworm Threatens Region"

Description:
Five major school construction projects are nearing completion in Duluth. We have an update with video of some of the new schools. And the “Asian Jumping Worm” may seem like something out of a horror movie, but it’s real, and scientists are worried what could happen if the invasive species gets loose in Minnesota and Wisconsin. We’ve got pictures of the squirmy worms. And a research scientist from the Natural Resources Research Institute is here to talk about the “Great Lakes Worm Watch”.

Guests:
Kerry Leider, Duluth School District Property Manager; Judy Seliga-Punkyo, Duluth School Board Chair; Tom Kasper, Duluth School Board Member; Cindy Hale, Research Scientist-NRRI
