Weird Lives of Small Animals Walk & Talk
Who: Participants of all ages are welcome; minors under 18 require a signed waiver and those under 14 require an accompanying adult.
What: What are those bizarre and beautiful growths we see on plants which look like marbles, dunce caps, saucers, or even sea urchins? They are galls, mostly caused by minute insects which hijack a plant’s reproductive machinery to create their own “condos”. Join botanist Paul Heiple on an exploration of weirdness in our local habitat.
When: Sunday, October 28, 10:00 am to noon
Where: Meet at the McClellan Ranch Preserve parking lot, 22221 McClellan Road in Cupertino.
Please bring: A reusable water bottle. Wear comfy shoes - we will be walking throughout the McClellan Preserve and Blackberry Farm - and dress for the weather.
Minors under 18 must bring a waiver form signed by a parent.

PLEASE NOTE: When you complete your registration for this event, you DO NOT need to print a receipt or ticket.
