Spotted Lanternfly Egg Hunt

April 15 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Have you heard the rumors about the Spotted Lanternfly? It’s true—they’re back and more prominent than ever. Join the RIPA team for a program merging volunteering with public awareness and building community. Participants will learn about the Spotted Lanternfly and how to identify and remove its eggs from trees and structures within the park, then put their knowledge to use within the park. After satisfyingly removing as many egg masses as time and energy allow, we’ll celebrate with a warm bonfire and hot chocolate. Look forward to a fun and learned afternoon complete with totes and temporary tattoos! All ages are welcome.

Location: Meet at the Freshwater Wildflower Meadow
