The nature center will also be hosting an Easter Egg Hunt and Pancake Brunch on April 15. A pancake brunch will be served from 12 to 2 p.m., followed by an Easter egg hunt for children of all ages at 2 p.m.

Tickets for the Easter brunch are $5 per person, or $15 per family of four, and includes the Easter Egg Hunt for non-members. If families don't want to have brunch, it's only $1 for each egg hunter.
