Gall Hike with Ms. Christine

Today our club had a guest speaking and hike guide, Ms. Christine Leonard. She is a grad student at USF and part of her studies have led her to have learned a LOT about galls. Galls are made by various insects so this topic was perfect for our 4-H Entomology club. We learned what we need to look for, found samples, identified samples and even looked inside samples. It was really amazing how many various ways galls appear and how much we had overlooked them in the past. We are now junior gall experts and are eager to share our knowledge with the world!
