April 4th - Grand Traverse Conservation District Springtime Egg Hunt, 10-11:30 am and Noon-1:30 pm, $5 per child, Kid’s Creek Park (between Kohl’s and Great Wolf Lodge on US31).
This isn’t your average egg hunt! Bring your basket and get ready to be sent out on a mission to find five eggs, each of a different color, that correspond to a Michigan critter that actually lays eggs. Before you leave, redeem your eggs for prizes and treats! Space is limited for this event and it was a sell-out last year, so pre-registration is encouraged. Click here to register. Walk-ins are welcome on the day of the event as space allows.
