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 sometimes timid creatures that you might usually be inclined to avoid. You’ll hike at a slow pace and stop frequently 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), plastic to sit on, and your meal. Reservations are required and will be acceptable on or after July 28. Register at: https://www.openspace.org/node/3848/register
