Nature Discovery Center Birthday Parties

Celebrate your child's birthday with family and friends at the Nature Discovery Center.  You may choose to take a guided tour of Russ Pitman Park or the Discovery Rooms, enjoy a live animal or puppet Party Program by one of our staff, or simply enjoy a picnic and birthday treats under the pavilions. Design your party to meet your birthday girl or boy's interests!

Party Programs:

Live animals, puppets, and specimens from our collection help make our party programs a special experience for your birthday child and their friends and family to enjoy. Suggested age ranges are provided, but all programs can be adapted for kids of all ages.

Bunny Buddies - Learn all about rabbits while visiting with a live rabbit and listening to a rabbit tale. Perfect for 2 to 4 year olds.

Super Senses - Guests explore their senses of smell, touch, sight, and hearing in this super interactive party program! Add in some sweet treats yourself and all five senses will be covered in this fun filled party! Designed for 3 to 5 year olds.

Join the Insect Club - A fun and interactive puppet show about insects, spiders, and other animals. Great for ages 4 to 7.

Scales and Tails - A program all about reptiles: snakes, lizards, turtles, etc. Children will be able to touch and investigate live animals and reptile specimens up close. Fun for ages 5 to 11.

Discovery Room Tours:

Center Staff guide children and parents though our Discovery Rooms. Your guide will bring out live animals for the children to pet and will help children find age appropriate activities in our exhibits.  Note: It is better to have the children come upstairs BEFORE refreshments (cleaner hands).

For our animal's sake as well as fire codes, there is a maximum of 30 children and parents in the rooms at a time.

Nature Walk:

Party guests and their parents explore Russ Pitman Park with Center Staff.
