Naturalist Training: Leaf Miners, Galls, and Other Creatures on Plants

Wednesday, September 27 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


During our 3rd Naturalist Training presentation, you 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!
