Explore the world of arachnids with spider-loving docents Debbi Brusco, Jack Owicki, and Sara Witt. With luck, a tarantula may cross your path as you search for often timid creatures that you might usually be inclined to avoid. You’ll hike at a leisurely pace along the Canyon Trail in addition to other trails, with an elevation gain of up to 600 feet. Capable, attentive children 10 years and older are welcome. Bring a flashlight (with a red filter or cellophane cover if you have it), and something to sit on.
Reservations are required and will be accepted on or after August 10. https://www.openspace.org/node/4364/register
