This event must be cancelled due to the Park closure caused by the Morgan fire.

It is Tarantula time, the gentle Giants of Mt Diablo and their eight legged kin. 

Those male tarantulas are at it again. Out of their burrow at the beginning of September they start their wander-lust over the hillsides and crossing roadways looking for the web covered burrows of a pretty female tarantula. Every year at this time people are surprised by the large but gentile and harmless spiders they see along the roads and on the trails. Come and learn about the lives of these special creatures from Naturalist Michael Marchiano in the Summit Audio visual room from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Be ready for a close encounter of the third kind with these fascinating creatures.
