The Young Naturalists Club is hosting a presentation on spiders at Scout Island Nature Centre on Saturday, Oct. 26 from 1 to 3 p.m.

You might associate spiders with dark basements or haunted houses, but the last Saturday in October you will learn to identify those big spiders on your porch from that brown spider in your bathtub.

Do we have poisonous spiders? What about Black Widows, Brown Recluses and Hobo Spiders?

Hear all the amazing facts and meet some local spiders (you can even bring a spider in a jar from home to be identified!) in a fun afternoon for families and their kids ages 5-14.

Call Scout Island Nature House if you have any questions about this free special event at 250-398-8532 or email yncwilliamslake@gmail.com

No pre-registration is required.

Also mark your calendar for Nov. 29 and 30 and join the nature centre for a free Earth friendly holiday craft-making event at the Central Cariboo Arts Centre next to city hall.
