Walk: Glen Canyon Spiders

Saturday, March 18, 2017
10:00am to 12:30pm

Join California Academy of Sciences arachnologist Darrell Ubick for a springtime trip in search of spiders. They are abundant in Glen Canyon Park—probably hundreds of thousands of individuals representing hundreds of species. We are sure to see a variety since Darrell knows where to look and how to catch them without harming them. Along the way, he’ll share his knowledge of spider biology: how they make and use silk, find mates, tend their eggs, etc. Spiders are very diverse, and only some are orb weavers; this trip will expand your awareness of the invertebrates among us.

  • Heavy rain cancels.
  • Meet behind the Glen Park Recreation Center where the lawn stops and the wild part of the canyon starts.
