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.
