Free, Family-Oriented, Docent-led Nature Walk
Spiders! with Jack Owicki and Debbi Brusco
Third Saturday Nature Walk at Edgewood Natural Preserve

Just in time for Halloween, arachnid enthusiasts Debbi Brusco and Jack Owicki will focus on spiders on this 3 hour, three-mile hike.

Saturday, October 20
10 am – 1 pm
6 Old Stage Coach Road, Redwood City
(just off Edgewood Road, 1 mile east of 280)

Explore the many ways spiders hunt and make homes at Edgewood Park. We’ll discover funnels, turrets, orbs, bowl and doilies, and maybe even trash lines! Great for families, seniors, and the whole family. We’ll teach parents and children to identify poison oak, common along the trails. Visitors can complement their docent-led walk by visiting the new Education Center located near the main entrance. Interactive exhibits explain Edgewood’s connection to the surrounding landscape and its history.

Where to meet:
Walks start from the Bill and Jean Lane Education Center. The parking lot can fill up early. Use extreme care when parking along Edgewood Road. Watch for new “No Parking” signs on Edgewood Road.

What to bring:
Bring water, a hat, sturdy shoes, sunscreen, and a snack if you wish. We don’t stop for lunch, but picnic tables are usually available after the walks in the Old Stage Day Camp area.

Restrooms and water are available only at the main entrance.

No reservations are needed unless you have a group of 10 or more. For group reservations, please email

More Third Saturday Hikes:
Friends of Edgewood’s trained docents guide free nature hikes at 10am on the third Saturday morning of each month. The 3 – 4 mile walks vary according to the docent and the current happenings in the Preserve. For information about upcoming hikes, contact Friends of Edgewood at 866-463-3439,, or
