Traditional egg hunts and special appearances by the Bunny come to several County parks and community centers this April, while a new event at the San Elijo Lagoon Nature Center promises plenty of Egg-ucational fun.
“Springtime is special in our County parks, so they’re the perfect places for families to enjoy the outdoors with seasonal activities like egg hunts,” said Brian Albright, director of the San Diego County Department of Parks and Recreation.
