Nature Club Dine and Discover: Good Golly Goldenrod
March 25 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Join CNC for an exciting speaker on the natural world.
Join Naturalist Jerry Hightower, of Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, for this VIRTUAL meeting of Nature Club Dine and Discover on Zoom. Participants will discover the amazing lessons provided by goldenrod ‘galls’. Three types of galls created on the stems of goldenrods by flies, midges, and moths offer a doorway into the complexities of the interactions between predators, prey, and parasites. How does the larva know which way is up? How do predatory birds know the location of gall? Join us and find out!
So, don’t be GALLED, just be GLAD you joined us. Goldenrod fly ball gall will be the focus of the investigations. Our investigations will determine species selection by the Goldenrod Gall Fly (Eurosta solidaginis), correlations between gall size and predator and parasite preferences and frequency, predator type, events inside the gall, metamorphosis, exit hole location preference, and more.
You will receive a Zoom link after you register and before the event.
Ages 16+; $10 general public/$5 CNC members. Advance registration required by Wednesday, March 24.
