FF-Alligator_Egg_HuntBunnies may be hopping down the trail soon, but 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 spring.

Aquarium educators 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, April 12 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Friday, April 18 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Saturday, April 19 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.

The program fee is $20 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 April 9 for April 12 programs and April 16 for April 18-19 programs. Register for the Alligator Egg Hunt here.
