What: Spring Egg Hunt                                                     Where: Yankauer Nature Preserve                                   When: Sunday March 20, 2016                                       Time: 2:00-3:00 p.m.                                                         Cost: $5 per child                                                                Ages: 2-6

Due to the weather forecast for Sunday (rain, snow, and cold) this event will not be held.

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.

At the end of the event, collected eggs are "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.

Parents and friends are welcome--older siblings may help their younger brother or sister in the search.
