Wetland Birthday Celebrations 

Turn your child's birthday into a nature adventure at the Wetland Center! Choose from three birthday party themes:

Snakes, Our Scaly-Skinned Friends - Snakes are such cool animals! Partygoers will learn about the unique characteristics of snakes and how they use these features to survive. Kids will have the opportunity to touch the snake at the end of the program.

Bobcats, Coyotes & River Otters, Oh My! - After learning about the native animals of the wetland through a presentation with skins and skulls, kids will take a walk on the boardwalk to explore and look for clues in nature that let us know these awesome creatures are all around us!

Birds of a Feather Flock Together - Hundreds of bird species migrate in and out of our wetland. Kids will learn why birds are important and how their unique structure allows them to survive. Out on the boardwalk, they'll also learn how to use binoculars to find birds as they take a bird walk. 

Parties are designed for ages 4 - 11. 

Birthday party celebrations include:

  • All-day admission for 25 people (age 1+) to the Wetland Center.

  • Education program and tour of the boardwalk.

  • A 2.5-hour reservation in our classroom (including setup and teardown).

  • Basic party decorations - tablecloths, birthday banner, photo background/selfie frame photo op and personalized birthday greeting in the room.
