The Easter Eggspress

The BC Forest Discovery Centre is back with the Easter Eggspress after 2 years with 3 days of FUN with the annual Easter Scavenger Hunt for families in and visiting the Cowichan Region. “This event has been a popular spring tradition for more than ten years and was so popular prior to Covid that we are very excited to celebrate it for the entire 3 day Easter long weekend. We have missed seeing our regular members and the families that make so many of our events their family traditions and we are so happy to be open for the 3 days to celebrate Easter,” says Chris Gale, manager at the BC Forest Discovery Centre.

“Unlimited Green Hornet train rides, goodie bags for those on the scavenger hunt, and a great educational experience, and the concession will be open, are just some of the reasons for kids of all ages to come out to the three-day event.” An admission rate of $8 for children 3 – 12 years (2 and under are FREE) and $10 for adults/seniors/youth makes it an affordable, fun day for all. This year’s event is scheduled for Saturday, Sunday, and Easter Monday from 10 am to 4 pm with goodie bags being provided for children who complete the scavenger hunt. Thanks to sponsor Save-On-Foods for supplying the goodie bags of Easter Treats! And special thanks to all our volunteers that help make these family-friendly events happen.

The Easter Eggspress is a fun way to kick off the new season. The Easter Scavenger Hunt is just the beginning of a season full of special events. Other events planned for the 2022 season include Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Canada’s Birthday, Truck Show, Kid’s Day, Labour Day, Halloween and, of course, the popular Christmas Express. Plus, you can guarantee the fun and knowledgeable staff at the BC Forest Discovery Centre will probably add a few surprise days in the year!
