We ask for a donation for attendance at field and certain other events and suggest R100 for adults and R20 for children 11 years and younger, with the option of donating R200 PER FAMILY for an annual subscription in July each year.
Some venues will also require an entrance fee which must be paid by each individual.
For field trips we will supply vials, magnifiers, plastic pill bottles and some other basic collecting equipment, but please bring your own if you have as well as any reference books, a picnic lunch, adequate water, a hat and good walking shoes.

Capricorn Business Park
29 September 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Help to create an arachnid list for Capricorn Business Park, which is in the Muizenberg East Conservation Cluster. The species lists for this area are fairly sparse, with nothing for arachnids. The area is being built according to very strict environmental guidelines and is managed as close to a natural environment as possible. The centre of the park is a dam, surrounded by indigenous plants and this is the area where we will collect. There are plenty of birds to check too. To get there travel on the M5 towards Muizenberg, turn into Capricorn Boulevard, drive into the business park, take the second exit at the first circle, the first exit at the second circle and turn left into Lakeside place. Coordinates are -34.093194, 18.488223. The area is safe, there is parking. Bring a packed lunch as there are no facilities for braaing or shops. To book and for info please sms Colin Budworth 082 788 3875 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Keep your eyes on your e-mail and our Facebook page as other events may be organised, sometimes at 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 11h00–12h00 to demonstrate and talk about SPIDERS!
