Spring has arrived and we’re ready to celebrate with a day of hands-on family activities inspired by the season! The Easter Bunny has been spotted at the museum—make your way through the hay bale labyrinth to learn about their rabbit friends and meet some baby bunnies. Don’t forget to say hi to our other furry and feathered visitors from the Heritage Livestock Club of Eastern Ontario too! Give natural egg dyeing a try, check out a vintage Easter treat cooking demonstration, and get set up to start growing your own herb garden at home. Special guests Junkyard Symphony will bring music and laughter with their four R’s of waste reduction: reduce, reuse, recycle, ROCK!
This program has been adapted with public health guidance in mind, including staggered entry times to reduce crowding.
