Maryland Park Service

On April 5, 2009, approximately 18 children and 14 adults participated in a natural egg-dyeing program at the visitors center at the Soldiers Delight Natural Environment Area. The program leader was Volunteer Ranger Lynell Tobler.


Natural dyes from common foods such as red cabbage, beets, coffee grounds, turmeric, cumin, spinach, parsley and onion skins were used in an ancient Swiss technique passed down through generations.
