Naturalist Trip - Capitol Land Trust


Naturalist Trip - Capitol Land Trust

Discover the spiders that reside in the variety of habitats at the Darlin Creek preserve, during the peak of "spider time!" This hike is a good follow up to the spider seminar on September 26. We will bring spider ID information, loops, and cameras and spend time finding and identifying spiders in the grassy meadows, beaver pond areas, and forest during this rambling walk.

  • *Varies*
  • Casual
  • Mileage: 2.0
  • Elevation Gain: 140 ft
  • Pace: slow

We will meet at the Darlin Creek parking lot at 10:00 am for an orientation and then proceed to explore the spider fauna in progressive habitats at the preserve.  Plan to be done by 12:30. 

This is a follow up to the online spider class of September 26 and priority is given to its participants.

We are going to have fun discovering a diversity of spiders and sharing with each other as we explore.

This is very much an introduction to NW spiders and the leader is only a facilitator, not an expert.

Bring your spider ID information, a camera with a close up, and a loop if you have it.  We will also provide loops and some basic ID material.
