Do your Oak trees ever sport strange spherical growths? Have you noticed donut shapes on your Hackberry leaves? These are the entrance points for the fascinating world of galls, a fascinating plant insect interaction with all the drama of the Game of Thrones!

Lisa Dolliver has been working to get kids to appreciate nature in their everyday environment at zoo’s, nature centers and natural history museums for the last twenty years.  Lisa’s family which includes geologists, naturalists and an astronomer, spent most summers in her family’s ranch outside of Cody Wyoming. While Lisa’s has a BFA in theatre from SMU it was only a matter of time before Lisa returned to her family’s science roots.  Lisa currently works in the Trinity River Audubon Center’s Education Department.
