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 R300 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.

Spider Collecting at ARC’s Roodeplaat Campus

23 April 2017 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm


Bring a picnic lunch. Meet at the first green bench under a sweet-thorn about 50 M from the entrance gate on your left and we will decide where to go from there. The natural areas are thick thorn-veld savanna, the grounds themselves are mowed and there are dams and bits of grassland, so we should find a good variety of spiders and other arachnids. Old and even new buildings will no doubt yield many interesting arachnids as well. We will try to list and identify as much as we can during the afternoon and specimens will probably be deposited immediately in the National Collection of arachnida. Book with Astri on astri@spiderclub.co.za or cell 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.
