Nature Challenge Week 7

These aren't mini pine trees but what could they be? I bet you can find some on your local forest floor!

To find out the answer and to talk about this week's topic, join my zoom meeting on Friday anytime between 9am and 10:30am.

Topic: Ferns and Wildflowers

Time: Aug 14, 2020 09:00 AM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Meeting ID: 791 1468 0195

Passcode: fern

The answer to last week's challenge was a gall made by a wasp. Some wasps will lay their eggs in galls. The wasp actually stimulates the plant to build this little home for it's eggs. The gall will be both food and shelter for newly hatched wasps. Galls cause little to no harm to the tree. In fact, they may act as more surface area for photosynthesis to occur on the leaf!
