Children’s book author and Eaton Canyon docent Diane Lang will bring her pet tarantula for you to meet, learn about, and maybe even shake hands with!
Tarantulas may be the most mellow of spiders, while doing that good spider work of gobbling up insects. Do tarantulas really have hair? Are they dangerous to people?(giveaway: no) Do they spin webs? Do they have good eyesight? Diane will answer those questions, and more.
Diane has been a nature center docent for 16 years, both in northern and in southern California. Her first picture book, “Vulture Verses: Love Poems for the Unloved,” was published in 2012. “Daytime, Nighttime, All Through the Year” just came out this spring, and another spring book, “Fur, Feather, Fin: All of Us Are Kin” will be available in May. You can check out her web site at dianelang.net.
This program is for families with preschool and elementary aged children.
