Speaker: Dr. Sebastian Alejandro Echeverri, PhD, Spider Scientist, Educator
Spiders and other arachnids 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 introduces you to the incredible superpowers, dramatic lives–and even unexpected beauty–of the many amazing spiders in our gardens and across the world. In this hour-long event, you will also learn how spiders fit into our ecosystem, and how to observe and interact with these animals at whatever level you are comfortable at. There will be a Q&A session as well, so bring any and all questions you have about spiders, arachnids, and other arthropods!
