Celebrate the coming of spring with a fun family event. Come learn about wild birds, the vegetarian side of their diet and how to feed your favorite wild birds with their favorite foods and flowers! Families will learn how to attract birds to their home garden and create natural spring inspired crafts. All kids will leave with two bird feeders, a seed dispersal craft to attract wild birds, a bird seed mix catering to your favorite back yard birds’ favorite foods and young seedling that can grow to attract and feed birds in your garden! Kids will have an opportunity to hunt for 3,000 eggs in the garden. Children will also get a chance to win a prize or two. The Easter Bunny will also be hopping in to get his picture taken with you. Don’t forget to bring your Easter basket! This hunt is sponsored by the Food Allergy Community of East TN, Allergy & Asthma Affiliates, and Allergy, Asthma, and Sinus Center, and is completely food-free to be safe for all children with food allergies!
