If you choose to visit the State Park, there will be an additional $6-8 entrance fee to be paid on site. At the State Park, you may also purchase passes to visit the Natural Bridge Caverns, only one quarter of a mile from the entrance to the State Park. The combined rate for visiting the Park and the Caverns is $20.

Conference attendees have permission to collect arachnids in Natural Bridge State Park, but must abide by the following guidelines:

  • Collection activities will be limited to Blue Ridge Trailhead and area near group camp.
  • All retained specimens will reside in university or museum collections.
  • A species inventory of collected specimens will be compiled and shared with the Park Manager and District Resource Specialist.

Please email Nadia Ayoub,, with a list of any species collected at the Park as soon as possible following the field trip.
