Spider hunt this Saturday night
Halloween is just around the corner. What better way to celebrate than to look for spiders.
Join Strawberry Plains Audubon Center for an evening spider walk where participants will find spiders with flashlights, catch the mysterious and wonderful eye shine of Wolf Spiders, and dispel some of the negative myths and fears that surround these fascinating creatures.
The Night-Time Spider Hunt is set for Saturday, Oct. 16, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. from the visitor’s center along the wooded trails.
Make reservations today for this popular returning program. The fee is $5/person or $10/family. Call 662-252-1155 for reservations, which are required.
This hike will be led by professors and arachnologists Gail Stratton and Pat Miller.
Nighttime at Strawberry Plains provides the perfect setting to find these elusive creatures. The fall is a great time for a variety of spiders. Often, a group of people looking for spiders can see as many as 10-20 species in a night.
