Migratory Bird’s Egg Hunt at Fort River Division: April 15

Published on March 30, 2017 by Farah Ameen Community News

The new Fort River Division of Silvio O. Conte Wildlife Refuge will be hosting monthly storybook hikes and other activities.

First activity: the Migratory Bird’s Egg Hunt at Fort River Division. This is not your traditional egg hunt! Geographic Positioning Units (GPS) will be used to find eggs! Each colorful egg has a bird inside that makes the Refuge its home for the spring and summer. The challenge is to read a fun story as you walk the trail, find all your colorful eggs, learn about the birds and decode the special message found within the golden eggs. There is an interactive worksheet to help you along as you hunt. Look for eggs as you walk the trail finding clues to fill in your hunt worksheet, then you put the clues back in the eggs so the next family can play too! At the end of the journey, if you can tell the organizers the magic phrase, each child will receive a grab bag.
