Event Description: 

Galls – what are they?  Galls are the mysterious and magical lumps, bumps and swellings that you may find on oak leaves, in plant stems and on fruits and tree trunks and even on flowers. Most are insect induced growths which actually serve as a nursery for their young.  But the insect that makes the gall is not always the one that hatches from it. Join Naturalist Peter and Barbara Rsaza as we investigate this fascinating world.
