Spiders in Our Gardens – Free Online Lecture by US Botanic Garden

April 28, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT


When thinking of “garden animals,” spiders are often overlooked and misunderstood, but these ancient, diverse, and wonderfully weird animals have a lot to teach us. Join spider scientist Dr. Sebastian Echeverri as he shares the incredible superpowers, dramatic lives, and unexpected beauty of the many amazing spiders in gardens both local and across the world. Learn about the ecological connections between spiders and plants and how to observe and interact with these animals through a variety of comfort levels. There will also be a brief Q&A session, so bring questions about spiders, arachnids, and other arthropods!

Intended audience: Adult All Levels: Suitable for all learners, this program will provide a variety of content. Program providers will answer both introductory and more advanced questions.
