DCMGA Hosts ‘Spiders and People’ Lecture March 10

The Door County Master Gardeners Association (DCMGA, will host the free, public program “Spiders and People: An Uneasy Relationship” on March 10, 7 pm, in the Collins Learning Center at Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay. Also enjoy delicious treats baked by volunteers. 

Mike Draney, chair of UW-Green Bay’s Department of Natural and Applied Sciences, will explore the impression that spiders have made on human culture, the negative attitudes humans often have about arachnids, and how people can develop a more comfortable relationship with the spiders that share our homes and gardens. Draney has a particular interest in the ecology and taxonomy of sheet web spiders.
