About the Event
For the event page:
During our 3rd Naturalist Training presentation, we will explore some of the fascinating and little-known creatures that live on plants. Galls are small structures induced by insects (usually) on many plant species, they may look like pink stars, fussy hairs, or apples. Leaf miners are tiny fly or moth larva that live between the two layers of the leaf. And there are many others, if you just look closely!
NOTE: Even if you are not able to attend, please register for the recorded presentation so you can receive the YouTube link to the recorded video, which will be released within a couple of days of the event.
