Spiders! If you watch one, maybe it will spin a web and catch a fly, or maybe it will sit still on a flower to ambush a bee, or maybe it will sidle up close to a little bug and jump up to pounce on it. There are all kinds of spiders, except vegetarians – they all have to catch their dinner one way or another.
Kids ages 6 and up can learn more about the interesting lives of these eight-legged hunters. If possible, this program will include a spider hike, so please dress for the weather.
9:30 to 11 a.m. Free.
At Powder Valley Conservation Nature Center, 11715 Cragwold Road in Kirkwood, near the intersection of I-44 and I-270. Call 314-301-1500 for reservations.
