Easter egg hunt holds treasures

Milner Gardens and Woodland is the place to be at Easter

Executive director at Milner Gardens Geoff Ball holds a ceramic bunny and hand-blown egg creations by local renowned glass-blower Ted Jolda.

Milner Gardens and Woodland will have a hunt for all ages this weekend with their annual Children’s Easter Bunny Search as well as hand blown glass eggs for adults to find, donated by local glass blower Ted Jolda.

“If you have a sharp eye and a bit of luck they’re yours,” said executive director at Milner Gardens Geoff Ball.

Jolda is known for hiding his beautiful golden pears around Milner Gardens at Christmastime, but this is the first time the gardens have received his Easter eggs.

There will be about a dozen ceramic bunnies around the gardens for children to find, with the clues located at the Welcome & Interpretive Centre. Interesting facts about rabbits will also be posted throughout the forest trails. Once they have spotted all the bunnies, kids can head to the Pool House Gift Shop for an Easter treat.

The search happens this Saturday April 23 to Monday the 25. Admission is free for children 12 and under accompanied by an adult. For more information visit www.viu.ca/milnergardens.
