Birthday Parties

What's cooler than a birthday party featuring live animals and a guided nature hike? 

Choose a live animal theme where kids touch and feed a toad, salamander or other animals depending on availability. Then, enjoy a guided nature hike with an experienced naturalist who will tailor the program depending on weather and season.  

You host the first hour in the party room, where you can bring treats and open presents.
During the second hour, a naturalist leads the group through hand-on nature activities and a hike.  All birthday participants receive a nature-related prize.  

Private Party Room & Naturalist led hike (2 hours)
$80.00 (12 kids)*
(Fee for birthday party rental without Naturalist activity remains at $80.00).
$100.00 (13-15 kids)
Adults free.  

*We feel your child will have a higher quality party experience if total number of children is limited to 12 children with 6 adults.  

Party room is available to rent before scheduled birthday party.  Because of other 
scheduled programs, naturalist could be away from Visitor Center; therefore, building will be open no more than 10 minutes before your rental time.
