Celebrate Spring at the 15th Annual Great Zoo Egg-stravaganza

March 14, 2013

Get a jump start on spring at Sequoia Park Zoo’s 15th annual Great Zoo
Egg-stravaganza. Bring the whole family to the zoo on Saturday, March 30 from noon to 4 p.m. for a hopping good time and learn fun facts about animals that flit, flutter and fly in the springtime sky.

Join in the annual Egg Hunt and Egg-spedition and meet up with our team of volunteers who’ll guide children through an egg-citing array of activities, including:

  • Honey Bee Toss
  • Bunny Hop
  • Insect Hide & Seek
  • Egg Decorating
  • Wildflower Crafts
  • Butterfly Clothespin Crafts

There’s also a self-guided chalk walk for kids to draw their ideas for springtime in the zoo, up close and personal animal encounters with some of our newer residents, and an egg-spanded animal enrichment schedule:

  • 12:30 Gibbons
  • 1:00   Spider Monkeys
  • 1:30   Ravens
  • 2:00   Barnyard
  • 2:30   Chacoan Peccaries
  • 3:00   Red Pandas
  • 3:30   Cotton-top Tamarins

“Everyone has so much fun at Egg-stravaganza”, says Nicole Spencer, Sequoia Park Zoo Foundation Director of Development and Communications. “Come rain or shine, we will be celebrating spring with a wide array of activities that cater to both the young and young at heart.”

All Egg-stravaganza activities are included in the price of zoo admission, which means that zoo members join the fun for free!  So, rain or shine, bring the whole family and connect with the wild inside you on Saturday, March 30 from noon to 4 p.m. at Sequoia Park Zoo, 3414 W Street in Eureka.
