Anyone who views trees during any season can’t help but notice the creatures flying around the flowers, the leaves showing various states of disrepair, the lumps, bumps, and odd shapes found on branches and leaves, and the many webs, cast skins, and other debris left behind after a busy growing season. Join Dr. Michael Jeffords, an entomologist within the Prairie Research Institute, as he explores some of the unique insect and tree interactions that regularly occur in Illinois forests. Learn what you can plant or do to preserve the important relationship between insects and trees. Be sure to visit our special outdoor exhibit, Vanishing Acts: Trees Under Threat, to learn more about threatened and endangered trees and action you can take to save them.
Exhibit created by The Morton Arboretum and The Global Trees Campaign. Adults. FREE. For more info: (217) 586-2612 or email@example.com.
