On October 26th, 2017 our lab was invited to present at Cal Academy’s Nightlife event titled “Creatures” where researchers and local organizations were invited to talk about their work in true 80’s Halloween fashion. We brought along our entire crew of graduate students, post docs, living and dead arachnids, and a few daring undergraduates to engage the public in all things arachnids. It was a great night of public outreach mixed with some fun Halloween vibes!
