The North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island will host its annual Sea Turtle Egg Hunt program at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday, March 31.

The 1.5 hour-event, which is open to ages 3-7, provides a great opportunity for children to learn about these prehistoric (and endangered) creatures.

Children will take part in a sea turtle program, come face-to-face with a loggerhead turtle, and make a craft to take home. The program will conclude with an egg hunt on the Aquarium grounds, as children search for eggs filled with treats. The event will be held rain or shine.

Cost: $15 per child non-member, plus regular admission; $13.50 per child member.

Where: North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island, 374 Airport Road, Manteo

Info: (252) 475-2300,
