Free, Family-Oriented, Docent-led Nature Walk
What does Edgewood Park have to do with the famous arched sign welcoming people into Redwood City: Climate Best by Government Test?
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. 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!
Families and Seniors welcome. 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.
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
