What Galls You

Galls provide shelter for a variety of insects that overwinter in the Northeast. During this indoor and outdoor presentation, Center naturalists will explain how some insects trigger abnormal growth in certain plants, creating both shelter and food for insect larvae. We will take a casual stroll on Five Rivers’ gentle trails, stopping along the way to learn about these galling insects and the plants they inhabit.

Note that the events at environmental education centers will only display in the region in which they are located, even though they serve residents from adjacent areas.
