Updates for June 2018

June: Easter Sunday will April 21, 2019, If you plan to hold an Easter egg hunt, add or update your information as soon as you can. In 2018 most Easter egg hunts were held on either Saturday, March 24, 2018 or Saturday, March 31, 2018. ALWAYS click the links to check date and time with the event's own website, as there are often last minute changes due to weather or logistical problems, just click on the link to the event's website and (in most cases), you want to click on the "events" link or "calendar" link on their website. Or use their site search for "Easter". Do let them know you found them here, so they will update us next year.  Since many egg hunts do not publish the current year's dates until the very last minute, we may not get their current information, which is why we have links to their websites, facebook pages and calendars. See their events calendar. There are also Easter breakfasts and brunches and Easter parades to watch!

RELATED:You may also want to go to a local farm to Pick Your Own fruit and vegetables; strawberries start very soon in most areas!

    A magically wonderful place for "kids" of all ages to come experience the joy of rabbits and learning hosted by the STEM Bunnies nonprofit educational organization. Snow or no snow...we're going to have a GREAT TIME! The intent of this activity is to advance the agricultural sciences through intracting with our staff and our rabbits... and the natural byproduct is a fun, bunny playdate.  What will we do at the Bunny Garden? The Bunny Garden is designed as a fun, interctive learning experience (not a mall Easter session of 5-10 minutes where sit on a lap and purchase a photo packet). You will be engaged with our volunteers and our bunnies while you learn about different breeds and about what makes a rabbit special. You'll have some free time to go explore, spending some time touching and playing with rabbits, getting into pens with blankets on your laps and allowing the bunnies to interact with you. Do not expect to have a bunny sit on your lap ; - they are very active and won't likely be snuggling with anyone. For safety, guests will not be feeding the bunnies. We intentionally keep the sessions to less than 20 families which helps ensure plenty of interaction while giving our bunnies just-enough stimulation and then giving them time to rest. Stay and play some of ourbunny-related games. With your ticket, you are invited to stay up to 1 1/2 hours in the Bunny Garden area.
