18 October 2020 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm
Join us for a spider walk at Norscot Koppies and Kingfisher Nature Reserve – 16 ha. of nature in the heart of the northern suburbs in Fourways, Johannesburg.
Directions: From the N1 William Nicol offramp, drive towards Montecasino/Fourways and go left at the first intersection into Leslie Road. After about 800 metres, turn right at the four-way-stop into Westway Road. Continue to the end of Westaway: at the T-Junction with Alexander Avenue you will see the entrance to Norscot Koppies on the opposite side of the road. GPS Coordinates are: -26.0321955, 27.9952897,15
We charge R50 per adult and R12 per child under 12 CASH ONLY to attend these events. We will supply a limited amount of collecting equipment, such as vials, sweepnets and reference books, but if you have your own, please bring them. We will also have eye glasses (magnifiers) at R55.00 and sweep nets at R80.00 for sale, again CASH ONLY.
Please remember to wear a hat and strong shoes, carry enough water and if you need them, snacks. If you want to stay longer in the reserve, bring a picnic lunch. We know you will abide by the regulations of JCPZ (Joburg City Parks & Zoo) and those of the Spider Cub and that you will take any litter away with you.
Remember to wear your mask and keep to social distancing.
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!
