KBGF Brings Easter Egg Hunt Back to the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden

Enid Kruckeberg Kriewald remembers Easter as one of her favorite holidays growing up at the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden. Neighbors and family members would convene at the Gardeneaster_egg for an egg hunt and brunch, complete with the neighbor’s famous lamb-shaped Easter cake, adorned with flowers. Enid and her mother, Garden co-founder Mareen Kruckeberg, would even hide eggs for each other so they could both join in the fun of the hunt.

This year, the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden Foundation is bringing this fun tradition back! Join us to hunt for eggs during our open hours, Friday-Sunday, 10am-5pm, starting this weekend (March 8). Eggs will be hidden, so you will have to use your eagle eyes to find them, but they will be visible from the trails. Please respect the sensitive new plants and steer clear of the areas we have identified as being egg-free. Each child may collect one egg – but feel free to search for more.


Every egg includes a family friendly coupon. Coupons include free sessions of our popular Garden Tots program, discounts on our KBGF/Froggy Holler Summer Camps, free ‘kid plants’, and even a few free Family Memberships! Turn in your egg at our onsite MsK Nursery to find out which coupon you won, and pick out a treat, because, really, what’s an egg hunt without a little candy?

We have hidden 36 eco eggs in the Garden for you to find.What is an Ecoegg? Eco eggs are made in the USA from plants, boast 100% renewable content and are non-toxic and BPA free. They are sturdy, reusable, and fully compostable after use. We are excited about this great choice for a low waste egg hunt at the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden, or in your own yard.

Happy Hunting!
