Raulston Arboretum opens spring 'egg' hunt

Posted March 23, 2016

Spring egg hunt at JC Raulston Arboretum

Don't head over to the JC Raulston Arboretum expecting to find a bunch of candy-filled plastic Easter eggs for its Spring Egg Hunt.

But this annual event, which opened this week and runs through Sunday, is a fun twist on the holiday activity. Instead of tiny eggs scattered across the arboretum in west Raleigh near N.C. State, you'll find a handful of big cutout wooden ones with letters on them.

The goal is to find the wooden eggs, unscramble the letters and come up with the answer to a nature-related question. It's a fun, free and quick activity ... especially once it starts warming up a bit.

It happens 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., weekdays; 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday; and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday. Be sure to start the hunt at the Bobby G. Wilder Visitor Center to pick up your answer sheet.
