What Happened When I Brought In A Blueberry Stem Gall

Can you guess what happened when I brought a frosty blueberry stem gall into the house?

Let's just say that about a month later we were treated to quite a spectacle when the gallers, the Blueberry Stem Gall Wasps, and some parasitoids, met the big wide world.

Nature Posts On Facebook

Nature Posts is now on Facebook!

  This is a screenshot of the Nature Post Facebook page where I have started to post ideas for nature activities.  The content is more current and about 'upcoming' things compared to this blog - more 'what-to-do' and 'when-to-go'.  A park naturalist described it well when he told me, "I like the Facebook idea - encouraging and enabling people to get out and experience what is going on around them as it is happening.".
