The Great Spring Egg Hunt

Date: Apr 19
Event Information:

9:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m.


Due to Friday and Saturday’s rain, and the resulting mud on the great lawn, we will be modifying the “hunt” portion of tomorrow’s celebration. Instead of trudging through the mud to collect eggs, children attending the event will collect eggs that are being passed out at the Zoo’s main entrance from under Shaba Terrace. Eggs will available Saturday from 9 am - 1pm, while supplies last.

Hop on over to the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens for an Egg Hunt at the Zoo on the Zoo’s Great Lawn. Egg hunts will be divided into age groups. Several lucky guests from each age group will find some EGGcellent Zoo gifts. Don’t forget to bring a basket to collect the eggs! There will also be egg-related enrichment for animals throughout the Zoo. This event is free with regular Zoo admission.
