By From page A5 | April 16, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Children on Saturday can take part in the Easter Golf Ball Hunt and Egg Exchange on Mare Island.

The free event will begin at 2 p.m. at the Mare Island Shoreline Heritage Preserve Visitors Center. Children will hunt for golf balls in the grass at the visitors center and then exchange the golf balls for easter eggs and chocolate.

The preserve is usually open from 10 a.m. to an hour after sunset every Friday through Sunday. People can walk or ride bicycles on a paved trail, with 14 interpretive stops along the 3-mile roundtrip route to the top of the Mare Island Hill, a preserve press release said.

Go to www.mareislandpreserve.org or call 249-9633 for more information. The preserve is located on Mare Island at the south end of Railroad Avenue.
