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.

Sorting session and identification workshop
12 August 2017 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm
The Leroy’s garage, Lodge 4, Boophane Lodges, 450 Anne Road, Ruimsig (It’s quite a nice garage!) A great many specimens have been collected and preserved but they need to be properly labelled, and accessioned so that they can be deposited in The National Collection of Arachnida held in the Biosystematics department of the Agricultural Research Council, Roodeplaat. This is one of the best ways to learn to identify spiders. You will need to bring your own lunch. We will supply tea, coffee vials, labels and instructions. Booking ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL as numbers are limited due to space and the number of microscopes we can beg and borrow. If you have one, bring it! Please contact Astri email@example.com or sms 073 168-7187.
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!
