Don’t forget to check out your local library for great programs for kids of all ages, every day of the week!

The Winslow Farm Animal Sanctuary in Norton is hosting their Annual Easter Egg Hunt this year on March 25 and 26, April 1, 2, 8, 9, 15 & 16! Adult admission is $10, children 2 and over $5. Bring your own baskets to the annual fundraising hunts which are a favorite with children and parents. The Winslow Farm Animal Sanctuary offers a relaxed, non-competitive hunt, where each child can meander through the tall pines of the beautiful Nature Trail to find colorful eggs at their own pace.  Have fun while you help to support the animals at the sanctuary. Before or after the hunt, you can tour the sanctuary and meet all of the wonderful animals, play on the playground or simply sit by a cozy campfire and chat! http://www.winslowfarm.com/index.html

Head to the Blue Hills Trailside Museum tonight from 6-8:00 p.m. for the Woodcock Walk! This is suitable for kids 8-18 years and registration is required for this program by calling 617.333.0690. Meet at the museum to learn a little about these strange birds before venturing out in search of a male bird displaying. Because of its solitary habits and superb camouflage, the American Woodcock is nearly impossible to see, except during its breeding displays. These little birds are full of surprises. Would you expect to find a shorebird at the edge of a forest? How many other birds can sing with their wings? And are there any other animals with eyes almost in the back of their heads? You have to be truly strange to earn the nickname of “timberdoodle” or “bog sucker.”
