Halloween portrays our humble spiders as malevolent and deadly creatures yet most are perfectly harmless to humans. Beef up your arachnid IQ with local entomologist Lawrence Forcella and observe a collection of live and preserved spiders, from delicate orb-weavers to hairy, hulking tarantulas. Ages six and older welcome with an adult.

Free with admission to the grounds. Spider Day event. 



Garden admission prices: $8 Adults, $4 Students and Seniors 65+, $2 Children 6+, Free to Members and children under 6
