Move over bunnies, alligators are on a roll at the N.C. Aquarium at Fort Fisher. The annual Alligator Egg Hunt offers children a chance to learn, create and play this Easter season. Aquarium educators will introduce children to a live baby alligator and share fun facts about these amazing reptiles found in North Carolina. Kids will also create their own special alligator egg basket. Then the hunt is on for candy-filled eggs in the Aquarium’s garden.
The Alligator Egg Hunt is recommended for children ages 3-10 and limited space is available. Children ages 14 and younger must be accompanied by an adult. Dates and times are as follows:
• Saturday, March 31, 2012 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
• Friday, April 6, 2012 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
• Saturday, April 7, 2012 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
The program fee is $17 per child; $11 for NC Aquarium members, and includes admission to the Aquarium. Regular Aquarium admission applies to adults accompanying program participants. Preregistration is required by March 28, 2012 for March 31 programs and April 4 for programs April 6 and 7.
