Egg-stravaganza Was Egg-cellent!

By: Amy Soneira

The International Wildlife Museum hosted its annual Eggstravaganza on April 9th this year and had a record-breaking attendance of 678 people!

Kids toting Easter baskets headed into the museum where games, crafts and face painting awaited them. The Museum staff and volunteers worked hard stuffing and hiding over 800 eggs throughout the museum! You could say it was egg-austing! The Easter Bunny was the main draw though, and hundreds of kids were able to get their photo taken with him along with Sheep & Goat Mountain in the background. Towards the end of the event, the crowds lined up by age groups in the back of the museum for the candy hunt where kids were able to collect lots of goodies to fill their baskets with. Fun was had by all.

We are working our way into summer now and getting ready for 6 weeks of summer camps at the Museum! This year, we’ll be running camps for ages 4-12 years, and each will include live animal encounters, games, crafts, hands-on science activities and of course, museum explorations. We look forward to keeping kids busy and learning this summer!
