Lecture: The Beauty and Wonder of Spiders with local birder RJ Adams - Monterey Audubon Society - Dec Meeting

  • Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History 165 Forest Avenue Pacific Grove CA 93950 US

Join us for a special presentation by local, beloved birder and biologist RJ Adams on his new and definitive guide to the spiders of the West Coast. We keep fastidious life lists of birds, butterflies and dragonflies. Why not spiders, too?

RJ, a native Californian, has lived and birded throughout the state for nearly 30 years. He has an MS in biology from the University of Utah where he focused on the co-evolutionary history of birds and their ectoparasites. He is also the author of the recently published A Field Guide to the Spiders of California and the Pacific Coast States, and will soon begin working on an inventory of the spiders of Pinnacles National Park. R.J. works as a special education teacher and greatly enjoys leading field trips for beginning birders.

All monthly Audubon meetings are held at the Pacific Grove Museum on the second Tuesday of the month. All meetings are free and members and non-members are welcome! Doors open at 7:00 PM with soft drinks and cookies provided by MAS hospitality. Monterey Audubon has been devoted to the understanding, conservation and enjoyment of Central California's birdlife since 1943. We strive to connect communities and individuals to the region's avifauna through educational programs and outdoor recreation. As a chapter of America's oldest conservation group we are also committed to advocacy on behalf of native avifauna and ecosystems as well as the implementation of stewardship practices which conserve and restore the Monterey region's precious biological diversity and wildlife.
