Spring Egg Hunt

Join us for the most naturally fun family egg hunt around! Each child will venture out to search high and low for hidden eggs on Riveredge’s beautiful sanctuary. The best part? This is a candy-free hunt and small prizes will be awarded to all participants. With three different start times, 9:30 AM, 11:30 AM and 1:30 PM there’s options for all schedules!

After the hunt, discover the wonders of Wisconsin’s egg-laying animals and meet some barnyard friends! You’ll also have the opportunity to color eggs using local, natural dyes to take home with you!

This event is sure to be a blast for the whole family! To ensure the hunt is enjoyable and fair for everyone, children will be divided according to age (up to 10 years old) and bag limits (10 eggs per child) will be set.

This event completely sells out each year, so pre-registration is required, and we highly recommend signing up as soon as possible to save a spot!

Cost per child: $5 for All Access Members | $6 for Trail Pass Members | $8 for Non-Members

Tips for 1st Time Participants:

  • Check in and parking is at the nature center.
  • A shuttle bus will take you from the nature center down the road (it’s only about a mile) to the sugar bush. A shuttle bus will return you to the nature center and parking lot after you are complete. The buses will run throughout the event.
  • Dress warm! You’ll be outside the entire time. We have a tent to eat in (in case of bad weather) and other tables outside around the sugar bush.
  • We have a band – so the area around the Sugar Inn is a real party atmosphere! Come to have fun!
  • The gift store in the nature center has lots of maple sugarin’ season items including Riveredge’s own homemade maple syrup and pancake mix.
  • Don’t forget about the rest of Riveredge – you are welcome to hike, explore, and play at the Natural Play Area while you are here.
