Creepy Crawly Spiders of Alabama

Tuesday, October 16, 2018

This is not a scary event. Come and make arachnophobia a thing of the past! Learn about the fascinating world of spiders with Dr. Drew Hataway from the Biological and Environment Sciences Department at Samford University.

Dr. Hataway will discuss his experiences with spiders, both in the wild and in the laboratory. He'll even bring some interesting arachnids for us to view up close. Learn how to distinguish dangerous from non-dangerous spiders. Plus, bring your flashlights for a fun-filled field trip after class in search of harmless wolf spiders on the grounds of Aldridge Gardens. Their eyes glow in the dark!
