Public talk

Come and see the real Avondale spider! Arachnologist (spider specialist) Grace Hall will bring some living spiders along for her talk on our native eight legged friends. Did you know we have over 2000 spiders in New Zealand, and we know so little of them, that over 1200 haven’t been named yet?  In her talk, with lots of pretty pictures and examples, Grace will explain the peculiarities of a number of spiders she is studying at Landcare Research.
