BAR HARBOR, ME-Come spring, crocuses bloom, buds come out, and eggs appear. While some may be made of jelly or chocolate, there are also a load of real ones emerging, in woods, fields and even under household eaves.

College of the Atlantic’s George B. Dorr Museum of Natural History is offering a celebration of the egg, a Spring Egg-stravaganza on Thursday, April 21 from 3 to 5 p.m., combining egg decorating and egg learning. Using natural dyes from spinach, grapes, tea, and flowers, participants will be dying hard-boiled eggs. For those longing for a little glitter in their lives, there will also be the opportunity to decorate paper eggs with yarn, glitter and markers.
