Cost: $150 – Fee includes a one hour program and the use of a facility for 2 additional hours before or after the program.

For more information or to schedule a party, contact the nature center nearest you.  Birthday party participants can choose one of the following programs:

Insect Mania
They are creepy, they are crawly, and they are all around us! We will explore what makes an insect special and even make a super duper bug scooper!

Fantastic Fish
Is it fast? Is it slow? Maybe it even glows! We will discover the ins and outs of fish by comparing their body and fin shapes. Children will fashion their own "fish" to take home.

Wild Woodlands
Come explore a forest habitat! Participants will search the nature preserve for creatures to find out where they live and what they eat. Each child will get to take home a plaster cast of a woodland animal track.

Scale Tales
Separate truth from fiction during this hands-on look at one amazing group of animals! Discover some of the many species of reptiles native to our region. Each child will design a special reptile magnet.
