Spider Specialist Meghan Cassidy discusses the spiders of Texas.
Meghan is a naturalist, photographer, and a strong advocate of everything in the class Arachnida. She will give us a foundation of basic info about spiders (and arachnids) which include spiders, harvestmen, scorpions, ticks, and a few others, many of whom are misunderstood and sometimes feared. Her presentation will include basic taxonomy, ecology, natural history, and common families. Meghan will discuss spiders found in Texas prairies with a focus on blackland prairies and the plants these spiders are associated with. She will also offer some strategies for identifying spiders. Meghan has many detailed spider photos to show and she will provide some tips for using iNaturalist as a learning resource for spiders.
