Sunday, August 12, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

There are many ingenious creatures that have devised ways to trick plants into growing structures, called galls, which shelter and feed them. We’ll examine an amazing array of bizarre and beautiful galls as we learn the incredible life cycles of the gall makers. Remember to bring binoculars, if you have them.

This walk is for ages 18 and up.

We request that no pets (except service animals) attend.

No registration is required.
