Calling all children on Saturday, March 26 from 10 a.m. to noon to go on a Heckscher Farm Egg Hunt, at the Stamford Nature Center and Museum. Children ages six and younger can bring their own baskets and search for hundreds of eggs that will be hidden all over Heckscher Farm. Eggs will be distributed throughout the two-hour event.
Once eggs have been collected, they can be turned in for a goody bag. Parents and older siblings are welcome to come along in support. The gates of the farm will open at 10 am. Please note only one goody bag will be provided for each child ages six and younger.
After you have hunted for your eggs on Heckscher Farm, stop in and visit Heckscher WILD! and the Overbrook Nature Center to celebrate animals that lay eggs from 10 am to 12:30 pm.
Kids will discover the special eggs of salamanders, why bird eggs come in different shapes and colors, and meet some of the Centers egg-laying snakes. There will be plenty of activities at the center as well including ongoing self-guided crafts in Overbrook, and live animal visits in Heckscher WILD!, A highlight of the day happens at noon when kids are invited to join staff for a live “Egg-laying Animals” class in Overbrook. Participants will meet a chicken, snake, and other live animals.
