• Spiders on the schedule at Pacific Grove Museum

    There will be a lecture on The Natural History of California Spiders on Tuesday, October 28 at 7 p.m. at the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History, 165 Forest Ave, Pacific Grove.

    Learn about spiders from the man who wrote the book! Richard J. Adams (author of the UC Press Field Guide to the Spiders of California and the Pacific Coast States) will offer an illustrated discussion of the natural history of California spiders.

    With more than 40,000 described species, spiders have adapted to nearly every terrestrial environment across the globe. Over half of the world’s spider families live within the three contiguous Pacific Coast states–not surprising considering the wide variety of habitats, from mountain meadows and desert dunes to redwood forests and urban centers.

    The lecture is free for Museum members and $5.00 for nonmembers.

    For more information, see the Museum website at http://www.pgmuseum.org/lectures or phone (831) 648-5716

    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm.
