Name: Friends of Itasca State Park Peak Fall Colors & Annual Meeting
Date: October 5, 2019
Time: 1:00 PM - 4:30 PM CDT
Event Description:

Join the Friends of Itasca State Park during the peak of fall colors for an event-filled
afternoon Saturday, Oct. 5. All are welcome to attend the Friends of Itasca State Park’s
annual meeting at 1 p.m. at the Jacob V. Brower Visitor Center classroom to learn about
park activities - past, present and future. Then from 3 to 4 p.m. the Friends will host
“Spiders Demystified!” with author, naturalist, retired science teacher and spider
enthusiast Larry Weber, also at the Jacob V. Brower Visitor Center. We see Spiders
around our homes and parks regularly, but we do not get good information about them.
Join Weber for his presentation on what a Spider is (and is not). The program will look
at the anatomy of Spiders; both exterior and interior. Weber also will give the audience a
look at some of the more common Spider families we are likely to encounter. And we
will examine the typical life cycle of Spiders. Weber will be available to autograph copies
of his book, “Spiders of the North Woods,” after the program. The Friends of Itasca
State Park are sponsoring Itasca Getaway, a raffle to benefit Itasca State Park. This
year’s proceeds will go toward the cost of replacing playground equipment at the
swimming beach and will be sold Saturday at Friends’ events until the drawing at 4:30
p.m. at the Jacob V. Brower Visitor Center. For more information about the Friends, go
