Nearby Nature's Egg Walk planned for Saturday
Discover who's hatching in Alton Baker Park this spring! Join Nearby Nature for the second annual Egg Walk on Saturday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. in Alton Baker Park.
At the Egg Walk, Nearby Nature will be celebrating the "egg-straordinary" assortment of incredible critters who hatch out of (or like to hide) eggs - from ducks to dragonflies, butterflies to bunnies. Throughout the afternoon, rain or shine, Nearby Nature guides will lead special trail hikes in Alton Baker Park. On each hike, folks will encounter a variety of winged and water-loving creatures in costume - beautiful Bella Butterfly, friendly Fannie Frog and dynamic Dazzle Dragonfly, just to name a few.
Back at the covered picnic shelter, Nearby Nature will host other activities. Folks from the Oregon Herpetological Society will be visiting with live reptiles and amphibians. For hands-on fun, there will be crafts and a water table full of baby insects from the park's ponds. Treats donated by local bakeries will round out the afternoon.
The Egg Walk is $4 per person for Nearby Nature members and $5 per person for nonmembers. Groups are welcome. Pre-registration is required; call 687-9699 to reserve a space. Each hike lasts about an hour and folks are welcome to come early or stay after their scheduled hikes to enjoy the festivities.
The Egg Walk is most appropriate for pre-school through elementary-age kids. For more information or to register, please call Nearby Nature at 687-9699.
