Auburn’s Peter Cotton Trail

April 7 - April 10


Hundreds of cute little bunnies will be hidden throughout various parks and trails in Auburn from April 7-10 for the Peter Cotton Trail event, which will be held Easter weekend.

Grab your peeps and hop around Auburn in search of these elusive bunnies. Find ten bunnies, while tracking their unique numbers and submit the on-line Bunny Scorecard Submission Form for your chance to win one of 60+ prizes (valued up to $100!). You’ll have a hippity-hoppity good time participating in this four-day scavenger hunt! This is a safe and FREE event for all ages and all ability levels looking for an opportunity to get outside and get active in an outdoor setting.

Print the Bunny Scorecard (PDF),  if you wish, or bring something on your search to track your bunnies such as a notepad and pen, smartphone or tablet. Note: you do NOT need to email scorecards. Printed scorecards (for tracking purposes only) will also be available, beginning April 3 during normal business hours at:

You will need to find at least ten bunnies. In most cases, you may need to visit two or more parks to complete your scorecard. Each bunny will have a unique number. When you find a bunny, track the corresponding number on your scorecard or tracking device. Printed scorecards are for tracking purposes only. Complete the on-line Bunny Scorecard Submission Form (one per participants {adults too!}), which will become available on April 7. Winners will be selected at random and announced on or before April 17.

Please don’t take or move the bunnies from their hiding spot, so everyone can enjoy this activity and bunnies remain safe from mowers and maintenance equipment.
