​“Great Egg Hunt benefits STEM education in Monroe County!”

Saturday, March 24th, bring your little ones to the “Migration Mania & Great Egg Hunt” at the Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden!  This is our annual celebration of the season when birds visit us as they head North to their summer homes.  In addition to the search for 6,000 prized eggs, there will be other activities, exhibits and entertainment for children of all ages, including face painting, aquatic touch pool, “pie walk” contest and, of course, basic birdwatching.  This year, our local mounted police with their horses and fireman with Engine #8 will be joining in the fun.  There will be refreshments to enjoy amid our greenery and prizes valued from $20 – $310 donated by our local merchants, restaurants and attractions.

Hours are from 10am to 2pm.  Admission is $5 per child 3 or older. Accompanying adults, children under 3 and members of KWBGS are admitted free.  Proceeds will be used to support the KWBGS Education Department and the work it does in coordination with local schools.

Egg hunt schedule:  10am – 0-3 years old;  11am: 4-6 years old;  12pm: 7-10 years old
