Egg hunt set for April 12 at Clearwater Farm

The Clearwater Farm Foundation and the Onalaska Jaycees will host their annual Easter egg hunt on Saturday, April 12, at the farm, which is at 760 Green Coulee Road.

Registration starts at 9:30 a.m., and the egg hunt will run from 11 a.m. to noon. Participants will be divided into three age groups: 3 and younger, 4-6 and 7-10.

People are encouraged to come early and spend some time with Clearwater Farms animals. The sheep will be sheared that morning, and kids can feed the other animals, which include donkeys, llamas, goats, chickens and other barnyard favorites. There also will be face painting for the kids.

Cost for participants is $2, $1 for children from families with Clearwater Farm Foundation memberships. There is no charge for adults.

Clearwater Farm and the Onalaska Jaycees are nonprofit organizations. All proceeds from the event go to Clearwater Farm to keep the property maintained and feed the animals.

Area Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts will take over the Valley View Mall from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 12, to show off their skills and promote Scouting.

Scout units will set up booths with various displays and activities. Among the interactive displays will be electronics, a bird feeder activity, Adventures in Scouting and an outdoors setup, and a balance beam made of logs.

Cub Scouts will race in the district Pinewood Derby championship from 10 a.m. to noon. There are three racing divisions: pack champions, open division and LEGO racing. Anyone with an old Pinewood Derby car is welcome to come and race. There is a $4 per car entry fee.

LEGO racing is free, and the La Crosse Public Library will run the LEGO car building activity, which is open to the public.
