“Saturday, Sep 3, 2022 from 5:00pm to 7:30pm A scientist exploring California in the 1860s described Mount Diablo’s tarantulas as “attaining the size of a half-grown mouse, possessing fangs the size of a rattlesnake’s, and delivering a bite generally considered fatal.” Yeesh. Is this the gruesome truth or just arachnophobia? Let’s find out! Join us for a nature walk through Mitchell Canyon and we will dispel any malicious rumors you might have heard about Mount Diablo’s misunderstood arachnids. You can even meet a tarantula named Curly, the real-life friend (not just Facebook friend) of the hike leader. Be sure to bring a mask, plenty of water and a snack, and dress in layers. Sturdy shoes or hiking boots are recommended. Heavy rain cancels. Restrooms are available at the parking lot. Participants will be required to accept our COVID-19 Protocol (available during registration). There will be a $6 park entrance fee This event is limited to 20 participants.
