Our Birthday parties feature a 2-hour fun and educational party for your child and his/her guests. The children will learn about nature and spend time outdoors (weather permitting). Our 2-hour Birthday Program includes a 15-minute activity at the beginning of the party followed by a 45-minute nature program (see party themes below). The second hour is open for your own celebration activities. Parties are suitable for children ages 5 to 10.
Birthday Party Themes:
Reptiles and Amphibians

Birthday Party – General Information
Birthday parties are two hours long. You are able to set-up a half hour prior to the party and must have the classroom cleaned-up no later than a half hour after the party.
Please make sure that all trash goes to the dumpster or recycling.
If the weather cooperates, you can hold the party outside, in the picnic area.
We will provide a classroom, rectangular tables and chairs. We do not provide food, paper ware or supervision of children during party.
Size of the Party/Chaperones
Our parties are suitable for children ages 5 to 10.
For parties with children ages 5 – 6 the maximum number of children is 15. For parties with children ages 7 – 10 the maximum number of children is 18.
The birthday is for 12 children (please see below for more children) and we require a parent/chaperone ratio of 1 adult to 4 children for children ages 5 – 6 and 1 adult to every 6 children for children ages 7 – 10.
Give the Gift of Giving
In lieu of gifts, your child may ask friends help make them our Critter Champion for a month. This is a great program to help feed our animal residents and teach children about charitable giving.
