Egg-cellent Garden Adventure & Egg Hunt

Join the fun of the egg hunt at the Stevens-Coolidge Estate in North Andover!

Springtime is a busy time in a garden. The bugs, birds and butterflies at The Stevens-Coolidge Place are ready to get to work planting seeds and spreading pollen, but first they need your help! In this program, participating children are on a hunt to find these garden workers resting inside their eggs throughout the property. Bring your own egg carton (sorry no bags allowed) to collect 12 eggs, then enjoy a craft time, story and seed planting to learn about how our garden grows and celebrate all things spring!
