Lecture: Spiders of Marin

Much maligned, spiders often elicit a negative reaction but there’s very little reason to fear our local species and many reasons to appreciate them. Learn what makes these animals so interesting; their important role in ecosystems, the different properties of silk and how it’s employed, and the various strategies that spiders use to find a mate, catch prey, and avoid becoming prey themselves. This lecture is intended for ages 18 and up.

No registration is required.

Questions: Contact Shannon Burke at or (415) 893-9520.

Directions: From Hwy 101 in Corte Madera, take the exit for Tamalpais Dr west. Turn left onto Stanford St and turn right onto Meadowsweet Dr. Library is on the right.
