Birthday Party

Turn your child’s birthday into a nature adventure at the Wetland Center! Our parties are designed for ages 4-11.

Choose from three party themes:

Snakes: Our Scaly Skinned Friends

Snakes are such cool animals! Party goers will learn about the unique characteristics of snakes and how they use these features to survive.

Bobcats, Coyotes & River Otters, Oh My!

After learning about the native animals of the wetland through presentation 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. In this program, kids will discover 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.
