CRESTVIEW — Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge Zoological Park staffers invite the community to join the animals and them for the first "Easter Egg-stravagan ZOO" April 12.

Families can expect a day of Easter Egg hunts, arts and crafts, planting flowers and the opportunity meet the Easter Bunny.

The activities are included in regular admission fees. Staffers also will offer the opportunity to take photos with the Easter Bunny for $5.

"This is something new and different," park volunteer Deborah Edwards said. "We have never had a benefit event at the zoo since we took it over."

The Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge took over the former Sasquatch Zoo's operations in 2012 when former owner and operator Debbie Mattox retired. 

Refuge staffers regularly organize Christmas and Halloween- themed events in Fort Walton Beach.

With this event, Edwards also wants to show some of the zoo's renovations since re-opening in June 2012.
