Eco Egg Hunt with GPS!
I had never heard of this before but what an awesome idea for our tech-savvy kids. Celebrate spring at Nahant Marsh in Davenport on Saturday, April 8. Children can participate in either a hide-and seek egg hunt (great for younger children) or a GPS Scavenger egg hunt (best for older children).
There will also be a variety of nature themed hands-on activities where children and their families will learn about local wildlife. Refreshments will be available for purchase. Each child that participate in the egg hunts will receive a bag of educational and eco-friendly goodies. Registration is recommended. This is a fundraising event and all proceeds go to support environmental education and natural resource projects. The egg hunts will run from 9:00-11:00 a.m.
