Cape Town Spider Walk

5 December 2021 @ 8:30 am - 1:00 pm

Come join us for our Cape Town Spider Walk at the Kenilworth Racecourse Conservation Area, where we will look for spiders, learn new things, and meet new people, including Wessel Pretorius, the event organiser.
Bring a hat, water, snacks, and sunscreen, and of course friends and family. Also bring a field guide if you have one. The spiders will be released after they have been recorded and photographed, so bring your camera if you want to photograph them.
A limited number of nets and vials will be available. If you have your own, bring them.
Admission is R50 for adults, and R10 for children under 12, which should be paid in cash on the day of the event.
Space is limited to 20 people, so bookings are essential.
Please RSVP: Jarrod 067 833 2191 or email info@spiderclub.co.za
