KALISPELL - The Flathead Shelter Friends held their second annual Easter egg hunt in Kalispell on Saturday.
Hundreds of children eagerly took part in the hunt, where 3,000 eggs were hidden in Woodland Park as a part of the hunt.
The Flathead Shelter Friends put on the hunt free of charge as a thank you to the community for their continued support.
Local businesses also donated prizes to the event, including bicycles, kites, and fishing rods. Flathead Shelter Friends President Karen Burkett says that shelter friends believe in giving back to the community.
"It feels good cause just to know that people will be walking on this trail and I can walk on this trail and say yeah, I made some of this."
Middle school students also took part in a spring clean and a pathway project. Every year, students pick up enough litter to fill an entire dump truck.
