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.

Event: Spider walk in Pretoria
20 September 2020 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm
Sunday 20 September, 8:30 am till whenever. Join our first field trip since lockdown! So come along, enjoy the outdoors and bring your friends and family and your camera. We will supply basic equipment such as vials and magnifying glasses or bring your own. This is a conservation area, so it will be mostly catch and release. Of course we will do our best to identify what we catch before we let them go again!
Park in the public parking area, pay your entrance fee to the garden – last we heard it was R40 adults, R15 scholars and seniors, under-6 free. If you have a Botanical Society Card you also get in free.
Meet just inside the entrance gate where you will sign our indemnity form and pay R50 per adult and R10 per child CASH ONLY to raise money for the club. We will walk from there.
Remember to wear your mask and keep to social distancing. Bring a picnic or visit the Milkplum Café for lunch. We can carry on after lunch if you like.
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!
