The Scout Island Nature Centre is getting in the mood for Halloween by hosting a free family spider event this weekend.
Families with kids aged 5-14 won’t want to miss this chance for close encounters with harmless spiders. Learn to identify spiders and appreciate their important place in the web of life.
Do we have poisonous spiders? What about Black Widows, Brown Recluses and Hobo Spiders?
Hear all the amazing facts and meet some local spiders on the spider walk. Participants can even bring a spider in a jar from home to be identified.
The spider event takes place Saturday, Oct. 25, from noon until 2 p.m. at the Nature House.
Other events to watch for at the Nature House include the free Earth Friendly holiday craft making at the Old Firehall Arts Centre on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 28-29.
On Jan. 24 come at night from 6 to 9 p.m. for an astronomy Star Party at Scout Island Nature House
