Explore NATL with us and Lisa Taylor to learn the many wonders of the natural world. Lisa is an arachnologist (scientist who studies spiders) here at the University of Florida. See the ways scientists collect and study spiders in the field and get a closer look at insects, jumping spiders and more.

We’re hosting weekend Family Discovery Camps this July. Explore the natural world with scientists and Museum staff in this outdoor experience for the whole family. Discover how scientists work in the field and learn how to use the tools of science yourself.

Wear appropriate footwear and clothes that can get dirty or wet! We will be heading outdoors to explore the University of Florida Natural Area Teaching Laboratory and will meet at the pavilion at the corner of Natural Area Drive.

Camps are designed for children in grades K-6 and their family.
