Spiders of Maine
with Dana Wilde
This will be an overview of spiders; their kinds and behaviors; myths, fallacies, and facts about their bites; and some of the spiders you're likely to see in Maine, the Northeast, and Maritime provinces. The class experience will be greatly enhanced by acquiring a copy of A Backyard Book of Spiders in Maine available from North Country Press as well as local and online book sellers.
Dana Wilde is the author of A Backyard Book of Spiders in Maine; Winter: Notes and Numina from the Maine Woods, and the “Backyard Naturalist” and “Off Radar” columns of the Kennebec Journal and Morning Sentinel. He earned his PhD, MA Binghamton University; BA University of Southern Maine.
