The Potomac Valley Audubon Society will hold its seventh annual Spring Children's Egg Hunt the afternoon of Sunday, March 29 at its Yankauer Nature Preserve.

Unlike traditional egg hunts, this one combines fun with an educational experience.

The eggs used in the hunt are colored to resemble real eggs of wild birds. Children are challenged to find the naturally camouflaged eggs on the trail and, in the process, they discover how birds keep their eggs safe from predators.  Other activities this year will include a "penguin egg walk" and an "ostrich egg balance challenge," as well as an egg-toss game.

This year's event will be for children ages 2-6. Eggs for them to collect will be hidden along trails at the preserve.

At the end of the event, collected eggs will be "traded in" for a sweet treat: decorating an egg shaped cookie to enjoy on the spot or take home and enjoy later along with lemonade.

This will be a family-oriented event and parents should plan to go with their children as they walk on the trail.  The actual egg hunt will begin about 2:15 p.m. (and it doesn't take long!)

Space will be limited and pre-registration is required. The fee is $5 per child.
