LAST CHANCE ON THE HIGHVELD! Spider walk in the Ruimsig Butterfly Reserve

May 26 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Meet at 432 Stallion Road, Corner Equestrian Road, Ruimsig, Roodepoort

Quick! Quick! Before the weather gets too cold for spiders and the winter fires burn the grasslands, come and see what we can find in the Ruimsig Entomological (butterfly) Reserve. We’ve noticed that with the late and copious rains and still warm weather, a lot of spiders are still around.

The reserve is pristine veld grassland which has been more or less undisturbed for decades, so there are no paths. Please ensure you have water and if necessary snacks and please wear strong shoes and be prepared for grass seeds getting into your socks!

We now charge R50 per adult and R10 per child under 12 to attend these events. Eye glasses (magnifiers) will be on sale too at R50 each. Please bring cash. This is the only way we can raise money to run your club.

We will supply sweepnets, other collecting equipment and reference books. You must just bring your spider spotting eyes.

Please note that there are no toilet facilities in the reserve which is why we have made the event fairly short!

Meet at 432 Stallion Road, Corner Equestrian Road, Ruimsig, Roodepoort

Keep your eyes on your e-mail and our Facebook page as other events may be organized, sometimes at quite short notice.   We will attempt to give you fair warning.  And remember that Norman Larsen is at the Cape Union Mart Adventure Centre, Canal walk in Cape Town every Saturday between 11 a.m. and 12 noon to demonstrate and talk about SPIDERS!
