Last spring's spider field trip in Glen Canyon was so hugely successful that we have decided to repeat it. Darrell Ubick, arachnologist at the California Academy of Sciences, is not only very knowledgeable, but a very effective communicator; the excitement of the large number of kids of all ages on the last trip vouched for that. Darrell wants to repeat the walk in Glen Canyon to compare it with what we saw last year. Depending on the weather conditions, there may well be different spiders and other organisms active this year.
