The Louisa County Conservation Center is preparing for Easter by holding an antler hunt this weekend.  Katie Hammond with the Louisa County Conservation Center says those participating will get a chance to learn about antlers and how they are different from horns.  Hammond says pre‑registration is required by tomorrow.  The Hunt is $3 per child and includes an antler hunt, prizes and a traditional egg hunt.

She notes the hunt will take place at the Virginia Grove Recreation Area from 9:00 to 11:00 am on Saturday.  Register by calling 319-523-8381 or email
