The program will be offered in two sessions, 12:30-1:30 p.m. and 2:30-3:30 p.m. Attendees will learn the history and lore of egg dyeing before trying it themselves with help from park staff and volunteers. Dyes will be made with onion skins, blueberries, coffee and other items.

Participants are asked to bring up to a dozen hardboiled eggs to dye and wear old clothes. The program is appropriate for ages 5 and up. Children younger than 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

The program costs $5. To register, call 717-428-1961. For more information, visit yorkcountyparks.org.
