How much does a birthday cost?

$80 covers 12 children. Additional children will be $1 per child.

When do I pay the $80? 

Payment is due 24 hours after booking your party. 

What if I need to cancel? 

Please do so at least 24 hours in advance to be refunded 25 percent of your deposit. You may get a full refund if you cancel before 24 hours.

How long does the party last?

Up to two hours.

When can I schedule a birthday party?

We suggest scheduling at least a month in advance. We have a limited number of spots per day, and those can fill up fast! 

The Nature Center offers various party times:
  • 10 a.m.-Noon (Tuesday through Saturday)
  • 5:30 p.m.-7:30 pm (Tuesday through Saturday)
  • 1 p.m.-3 p.m. / 4 p.m.-6 p.m. (Sunday)

How old does my child need to be to have a birthday party? 

All children must be turning at least 3 years old. There's no limit on the oldest age.

What does the Nature Center provide for the birthday parties? 

5 tables and 25 chairs.  We will bring out live animals (mammals, reptiles, and insects) for the children to interact with, and the birthday child will get the chance to feed one of our outside mammals. We, of course, will do the clean up.

So, what do I do?

You should bring any decorations you would like to put out, usually 15 minutes before the scheduled party time. You may bring any food or drink you'd like. Don't forget the cake (and the kids)! Please, no red drinks, confetti, sparklers, laser pointers or sound makers such as kazoos.
