I love going out and wandering in nature and celebrating how little I know and how much there is to learn. I know a little about a lot and a good amount about Oak Galls and Oaks.

I like to challenge myself making IDs and I know that I am not always correct. Please, please, tell me if I am wrong and do not take any ID I make as gospel. I will respond to any comments etc.

I am a bit of a fanatic of plant galls. So much so that I have built a website dedicated to help catalog and identify them. If it were not for iNat the conjunction of people and events to make this possible likely would have never occurred. https://www.gallformers.org and github for source: https://github.com/jeffdc/gallformers

Getting Your Oak IDed
Some Oaks can be very tricky to ID to species and to improve the chance of getting an ID I wrote up a guide that I hope will help:
