Party Particulars

Parties are scheduled for a two hour block. Families will have the outdoor classroom to set up their party food and decorations. Supervision of children in the outdoor classroom and straightening up post-party is the party host's responsibility.

The $225 fee covers 20 or fewer children. Parties are for ages 4-12 years. An additional $12 fee is assessed per child over 20, up to a maximum of 30 children. Siblings ages 12 years and under count as party participants. The children will be seated for cake and ice cream, provided by the family, at the tables. Food and beverages may only be consumed at the tables.

Party participants enjoy a 60 minute naturalist-led presentation including a craft and a nature walk. The party hosts must have the trash bagged and the outdoor classroom area returned as found.
