Join Keene State College professor of biology and spider researcher Dr. Karen Cangialosi for an introduction to New England spiders. On Friday night, she’ll present an indoor overview of our local spider species. On Saturday, we’ll dig deeper, with ample field exploration and a look at spiders as model organisms for studying questions of behavioral ecology. This short Environmental Studies Institute course will help you develop a new understanding of, and appreciation for, the valuable role spiders play in our local ecosystems. The Friday evening talk is open to all, but the Saturday session is by registration only.

Dates: Friday, June 15, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. and Saturday, June 16, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Harris Center and surrounding grounds.
