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.
