North Texas Giving Day - Online (Deadline Sept. 22)
Sheri Capehart Nature Preserve: Looking for Arachnids - CANCELED
UPDATE: EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER. NEW DATE TBA.
Meghan Cassidy will lead us on a spider walk focusing on the types of spiders commonly found at SWNP. Meghan will cover high level information about the natural history of some of these spiders, why spiders are ecologically important (and not scary!), cover the two types of medically significant spiders that can be found in Texas along with precautions, as well as handing out an informational pamphlet she has created, including photos of spiders from SWNP! As we walk around, we’ll encounter other invertebrates (such as insects), so Meghan will give some impromptu information on any insects we come across as well!
