The Waynesburg Unity Trail will host its second annual “Not So Typical” Easter Egg Hunt for local children Saturday, April 13, from 10 a.m. to noon on the trail. The event is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend.
Each egg will resemble an actual bird’s egg, and instead of candy inside, there will be a sticker of the bird that lays that egg. Janet Paladino, professor of biology, said the event gives children the opportunity to learn about local ecosystems and the importance of biodiversity.
“It is beneficial because very young children get the opportunity to experience the wonder of spring,” said Paladino.
Participants will also receive free plants donated by the Ecostewards club of Waynesburg University, and be entered into a drawing for an Easter basket donated by the United Way.
Paladino is excited to invite the community to enjoy the Unity Trail, a joint project between the Borough of Waynesburg and the University that focuses on the importance of restoring natural habitats in our community.
The Unity Trail can be found down the hill from the end of East Wayne Street near Martin Hall on the University’s campus.
