Easter at OHM Interpretive Centre

 by Twyla Siple, Interlake Spectator

Easter long weekend was a success at Oak Hammock Marsh Interpretive Centre March 30 to April 1.

Families gathered indoors for face painting, bunny bingo and outdoors for GPS Easter Egg Hunting and more. According to staff, approximately 120 families made it out on Good Friday for activities such as their special GPS Easter Egg Hunt.

Families were trained to use special GPS units by OHM staff so they could search the grounds on their own for Easter eggs with letters on them. Once all 12 letters were found, families had to then solve the word jumble before the family could claim their prize.

Spring is back and as temperatures hover between the negative teens and single digits, Canadian Geese are returning to the Interlake, as seen here at Oak Hammock Marsh.
