PVAS Host: Allen Miller, Certified Master Naturalist
PVMN Continuing Education Eligible
Join us as we study Spiders and learn why they are Spectacular Superheroes!
Allen Miller is excited to share his passion of insects and spiders during his two-part evening; “Insect Safari” and “Spider Verse” (registration for “Insect Safari” is separate)
This program will be packed with interesting facts and fun! Participants will learn from each other while actively participating and engaging in the activities. Spiders often get a bad rap, but they really are superheroes! The group will participate in a web of life activity all about the importance of spiders as well as explore through a power point some of WV’s common spiders. Afterwards, everyone will go out with flashlights onto the preserve in search of our 8-legged superheroes.
Allen will be guiding the activity and then the group can all learn together.
Please feel free to bring along any spider field guides and App’s on your phone that you have.
Allen Miller was a teacher for 35 years where he spent a large chunk of that time teaching science. Allen is a Morgan County WV residence and currently, a seasonal naturalist at Cacapon Resort State Park. He is a Master Naturalist member in the 2021 cohort. Allen will be guiding the activity and then we all can learn together.
Please wear comfortable walking shoes and bring along drinking water and insect repellent. When you arrive at the preserve parking lot, please head down the hill to the back deck of the Nature Center where the group will gather for the start of the program.
