Join us at the Migratory Bird's Egg Hunt at Fort River Division. Not your traditional egg hunt! We will use Geographic Positioning Units (GPS) 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! So, at the end of the journey, if you can tell us the magic phrase, each child will receive a grab bag.
