The Fascinating World of Plant Galls

Sunday, August 12 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

| Free

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.

High fire danger cancels: Call (415) 893-9527 after 8am on the day of the event to hear a recorded messaged if cancelled.

No registration is required.
