Great Eggspectations at Aldo Leopold Nature Center

Great Eggspectations at Aldo Leopold

Legend has it that every spring a rabbit would visit children’s homes during the night and leave a woven nest with an egg in it as a sign that spring had arrived. Join us during Spring Break to hear this wonderful story and adorn your own spring basket just as the animals do by using materials from the land. Naturalists will take you on a trail hike searching for leaves, pinecones, twigs, flowers, grasses, and other materials for your basket trimmings. Learn to dye eggs naturally with leaves, grasses, and other gifts of nature to mimic the variety of colorful eggs made by our wild critters! Your creativity and nature’s colors will give your eggs a special one-of-a-kind design! Eggs and other materials will be provided. Appropriate for children ages 5 and older. Registration deadline is Monday, April 6.
